So what is the difference between a micr-discectomy and a regular discectomy?Did they use a laser or something?I am glad it worked for you.James had two discectomy's done on L5S1.Unfortunately they did not fix the problem.His third surgery was supposed to be an anterior fusion with a cage but the doctor(Dr.Ciacci from baltimore)used a bone fusion instead without our consent.Now he has to have a posterior fusion done to even things out.It is ashame because we were under the impression that the cage would have fused both sides and he would not need another fusion.We have not had the opportunity to ask the doctor why he chose not to do this and why he did this other procedure without our consent.Anyway, glad to hear yours was a success.Take care and God bless.
