excision of the intra-articular disc of a joint.
A procedure typically used to correct a "disc prolapse" (commonly known as a "slipped disc"). A disc prolapse occurs when the pulpy portion of an invertebral disc in your spine protrudes and causes painful pressure on a spinal nerve. The discectomy corrects this problem by removing the protruding part of the disc.
The removal of a disc or part of a disc.
a surgical procedure that involves removing damaged disc material from between the vertebrae.
The partial or complete excision of an intervertebral disk. Also called discotomy. Back to the Top
a procedure to remove a portion of the disc that rests between each vertebrae
a procedure to remove the part of the herniated disc that is compressing a nerve root
a surgery done to remove a herniated disc from the spinal canal
a surgical procedure in which part or all of an intervertebral disc is removed from the spine
a surgical procedure on the spine to remove a fragment of herniated disc
a surgical process in which degenerative disc and shoulder material is removed from the body, and replaced with a bone graft
Surgical removal of prolapsed nucleus pulposus.
(disk-ECK-to-mee ) â€” Surgical removal of an intervertebral disc.
Surgical procedure in which part of a herniated disc is removed. The goal of the surgery is to make the herniated disc stop pressing on and irritating the nerves which cause pain and weakness. These procedures may be done as an open procedure, with a microscope or minimally invasive method.
The surgical removal of the bulging or extruding disc material ( nucleus pulposus). Access to the bulging or extruding disc material may be had by removal of the lamina of the vertebral body ( laminectomy) or the cutting of an opening in the lamina (laminotomy). Discectomy may be done in conjunction with a foraminotomy and/or a fusion.
Surgical removal of part or the entire herniated intervertebral disc.
Surgical removal of part or all of an intervertebral disc material placing pressure on neural elements.
The removal of part or the entire intervertebral disc
removal of disc either partially or completely
The surgical removal of all or part of a herniated intervertebral disc compressing a nerve root. When microscopic or visually aided surgical techniques are used, this procedure is referred to as microdiscectomy. The procedure can also be done through a small incision using indirect visualization (percutaneous discectomy).
the cutting out (- ectomy) of an intervertebral disc.
the surgical removal of a herniated disc. A discectomy can be performed in a number of different ways, such as through a large incision in the spine or through newer, less-invasive procedures using magnifying microscopes, x rays, small tools, and even lasers.
removal of all or part of an intervertebral disc (the soft tissue that acts as a shock absorber between the vertebral bodies).
The surgical removal of part or all of an intervertebral disc. It is performed to relieve pressure on a nerve root or the spinal cord.
The surgical removal of part of the disc that has prolapsed, bulged or ruptured, causing pressure on spinal nerves. This operation can be done by an open method, by microsurgery and a minimally invasive technique through an enoscope.
A discectomy is a surgical procedure in which an extravasated segment of the intervertebral disc, which is causing pain by stressing the spinal cord or radiating nerves, is dissected. A laminectomy is often involved to permit access to the intervertebral disc.
