Many procedures have been tried for lumbar herniated disc surgery, and today microdiscectomy is the most effective procedure. The word 'microsurgery' represents surgical operations performed under microscope. A microscope allows for performing the same surgical operation through a smaller scar, by magnifying the view of the surgical site. Microdiscectomy is today mentioned as a closed surgery procedure in some medical advertisements; but in fact, it is not a closed surgery. Is an effective procedure that significantly shortens the recovery period by allowing for just a small surgical incision, and causing minimal damage to the patient’s surrounding tissues and muscles during surgery; and that significantly reduces the risk of possible complications by magnifying the view of the surgical site.
