Spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, and other such spinal conditions lead to spinal nerve compression. The compression of the spinal nerve roots leads to neck and/or back pain, with symptoms that radiate into the lower and/or upper body and extremities. Dr. Salari performs the groundbreaking, minimally invasive microdiscectomy in Morristown, to decompress the nerve roots and spinal cord, thus alleviating the symptoms of nerve compression.
Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery wherein specialized instruments, such as a surgical microscope are used to decompress the pinched nerve roots and spinal cord. The surgeon uses sequential tube dilation to spread the muscles around the spinal cord to access the diseased disc and vertebrae. Furthermore, the surgery is performed via an extremely small “band-aid” incision with the help of a robotic microscope, so the post-treatment downtime is minimal.
