Golden Standard In Lumbar Hernia Surgery

From Emsey Hospital Nerve and Neurosurgery Specialist Surgeon Salih Aydın MD, said that there are two forms of surgery performed today which are the anterior cervical discectomy and the percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy method which is performed under the skin.

“Until recently, microsurgery was the golden standard for this treatment. Open micro-discectomy was introduced at the beginning of the 20th century. However, the excitement created by endoscopy nowadays was the same when microscopic disc surgery was introduced back then. It was very important to perform the procedure without harming spinal stabilization – in other words the ability of movement. Compared to the endoscopic method, microsurgery is considered an invasive method. Endoscopic disc surgery should be regarded as the new golden standard.”

He further added, “In endoscopic surgeries the hernia is identified using the scopy (imaging) device. The device is used to locate the hernia and determine where it will be removed. This way, it is possible to mark it step-by-step and reach the hernia area. Removing the hernia relieves the leg nerve while the radiofrequency method reduces pressure on the disc.”
