During microsurgery, we use full anaesthesia, a special surgery microscope and corresponding fine instruments. Due to these we only need a small skin access. The use of the microscope makes a precise and very safe operation possible. Rehabilitation means are discussed with our physiotherapist and can be started one week after microsurgery.
Advantages of microsurgery in cervical or lumbar spine
- walking is possible only a few hours after surgery due to the minimized access
- often the pain vanishes directly after surgery
- return to occupational and sports activities is possible only a few weeks after surgery
Another microsurgical procedure is the so-called decompression / microlaminectomy.
