Discectomy for herniated discs can now be made with a smaller incision, approx 2.5 cm. The procedure time may take slightly longer than a traditional open surgery, but studies have shown that there is less pain, less blood loss, and patients often return to work sooner. The incision is made a few centimeters away from the center of the back and a tube is passed down to the spine using X-ray guidance. The surgery is then performed in the same manner as a traditional open procedure.
