Microdiscectomy Surgery Cost

Cervical microdiscectomy and microdecompression are other names for microdiscectomy. It is among the spine surgery techniques most frequently carried out. For individuals with a lumbar herniated disc, microdiscectomy or cervical microdiscectomy is recommended. A discectomy's primary objective is to remove the substance that is causing the discomfort to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve root.

This goal was previously achieved through an open procedure known as lumbar discectomy surgery, which requires a lengthy and painful recovery period due to the huge incision made to sever some of the back muscles. These days, a sophisticated procedure known as a microdiscectomy can accomplish the same result while requiring a smaller incision and less damage to the back muscles. Consequently, healing is quicker and less agonizing.

Factors affecting the cost of Microdiscectomy:

  • Orthopedic surgeon consultation charge: This is an estimated price that may change depending on several variables, including the orthopedist's level of experience, specialty, and level of competence. Generally speaking, expert surgeons charge more than less experienced surgeons.
  • Medication during spine treatment: Before spine surgery, a physician may recommend a few different medications. The cost of the medications taken before and after spine surgery may also have an impact on the overall cost of the procedure.
  • Type of spine surgery: Spinal surgery can be carried out using a variety of procedures. The diagnosis and severity of the spinal issue dictate the type of technique that will be used to repair it.
  • Diagnostic Tests for Spine Surgery: In order to make a complete diagnosis, the orthopedic surgeon typically does a physical examination. To rule out any underlying disorders, a doctor may also suggest a few diagnostic tests.
  • The condition's severity: The kind and degree of the spinal abnormality or disease have an impact on the overall cost of the procedure. Spine surgery may be advised for some causes, including spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease, trauma or accident, infections in the spine, etc.
  • Selection of the medical facility for care: Depending on the hospital's infrastructure, each hospital's price range may differ. The higher the hospital's rates, the better the facility. The reputation of the hospital, the hospital's location, and the kind of accommodation chosen for the patient all influence the cost range.

With us, you are sure to receive all the benefits at competitive prices which is a better choice than paying actual hospital costs. The usual reason for this procedure is a herniated disc. A microdiscectomy takes away the pressure which is present on the spinal nerve root as it takes out the material which is the reason for the pain. A bit of the bone which is present over the nerve root and/or disc material is taken out which is under the nerve root. This procedure is better when leg pain has to be relieved rather than lower back pain., We bring to you the smartest of Microdiscectomy packages in Asya Hospital, Turkey containing all the benefits.

About the Microdiscectomy

Microdiscectomy is also known as microdecompression or cervical microdiscectomy. It is one of the most commonly performed spine surgery procedures.

Microdiscectomy or cervical microdiscectomy is preferred for patients with a lumbar herniated disc. The main goal of a discectomy is to relieve the pressure on a spinal nerve root by removing the material causing the pain. Traditionally, this purpose was solved by an open technique called lumbar discectomy surgery, which involves making a large incision to cut some of the back muscles, leading to a slow and painful recovery. Nowadays, an advanced form of surgery called microdiscectomy can achieve the same goal that too with the help of a small incision and fewer injury to back muscles. As a result, the recovery takes less time and is less painful.  A special microscope is used in microdiscectomy to view the disc and nerves. The larger view allows the surgeon to make a smaller incision, causing less damage to the surrounding tissues.

 

When is microdiscectomy needed?

Sciatica is a condition caused by compression of the spinal nerve, which generally results in chronic pain in the legs of the patients. This compression of the spinal nerve is frequently the result of a herniated lumbar disc.  As a herniagrows, the damaged tissue extends into the spinal column and pushes on the nerves. This condition causes the nerves to send pain signals to the brain and the brain interprets the pain source to be coming from the legs.

Most commonly, sciatica heals naturally or with the help of medication in a few weeks. But, if sciatica lasts more than 12 weeks after taking oral medicines, patients may benefit from discectomy. Discectomy is also used for the treatment of spondylosis and lumbar spinal stenosis. While spondylosis occurs due to degenerative osteoarthritis of the vertebrae, lumbar spinal stenosis occurs due to narrowing of the spinal canal leading to nerve compression. The latter may also warrant the need for a spinal stenosis surgery.

How is Microdiscectomy performed?

Lumbar discectomy surgery is typically performed for rehabilitation of a herniated disc. The same thing is done during microdiscectomy, but with the help of a special microscope. During this procedure, a small part of the bone over the nerve root and disc material under the nerve root is taken out, which finally result in relieving pressure on the spinal nerve column. The microdiscectomy treatment starts by giving general anesthesia to the patient. The patient will be unconscious during the entire surgery and is not able to feel anything. Preoperative intravenous antibiotics are given before the surgery.

The procedure is performed with the patient lying face down, generally using a special operating table with special paddings. The surgical region is cleansed with a cleaning solution.  A one-to two-centimeter incision is made directly over the area of the herniated disc. Special retractors and a lighted operating microscope are used to allow the surgeon to see the region of the spine. It helps in minimizing or avoid cutting of the adjacent muscles and tissues.

Before removing a herniated disc, a small piece of bone called lamina is removed from the affected vertebra. This is called a laminotomy, a procedure which allows the surgeon to fully visualize the herniated disc. Small scissor-like tools and grasping instruments are used to remove the protruding disc material. Lastly, the incision area is washed out with sterile water containing antibiotics and the deep fascial layer and subcutaneous layers are closed with a few sutures. The skin is fixed up using special surgical glue and does not require bandages.

Recovery from Microdiscectomy

The microdiscectomy recovery time is much less than any other invasive procedure. Typically, the patient can expect to leave the hospital within 24 hours of the surgery. Patients may be advised to meet a physical therapist before leaving the hospital. The therapist will instruct the patient on how to reduce twisting and bending of the back. The therapist may advise some exercises to improve the strength and flexibility of the muscles around the spine.

Patients are advised not to drive, sit for a prolonged period, lift anything heavy and bend over immediately after the surgery. The patient is able to resume normal activities after two weeks, but they are advised to avoid lifting heavy objects for at least four weeks after the surgery. Full recovery after microdiscectomy procedure takes at least four to six weeks.

Microdiscectomy: Risks and Complications

Microdiscectomy is a faster pain relief option than nonsurgical treatment in case of a lumbar herniated disc, but it is not significantly clear that whether surgery makes a difference in what treatment may be needed later on.

Some post-microdiscectomy researchers determined that people who have had microdiscectomy have reported similar improvements as other treatments after one year of surgery. Although it is a less invasive procedure in comparison to other treatment such as spinal fusion, microdiscectomy also involves certain risks just like any other surgery.

Some of the common microdiscectomy risks are:

  • The very first risk is that surgery does not always work, or it may not work better than any other treatment
  • There is a minimal risk of damaging the spine or any other nerves
  • There is a slight risk of some kind of infections
  • Bleeding
  • Leaking spinal fluid
  • Problems associated with general anaesthesia
