If you are a person who is dealing with low back pain, leg pain or herniated disc then the best option for you is the decompression Spine Surgery in Mumbai. Decompression is a surgical procedure which the surgeons at the Spine Surgery India clinic perform to relieve the pressure and alleviate pain caused which has been caused due to impingement. A small portion of your bone over the nerve root, which is known as lamina, and/or disc material from under the nerve root, is removed to give the nerve more space.
There are 3 common types of decompression Spine Surgery in Mumbai which the surgeons at the Spine Surgery India clinic will perform by using minimally invasive techniques and these are:
• Laminotomy/foraminotomy:This is a procedure in which the part of the lamina is removed to create a larger opening to relieve the pinched nerve.

• Discectomy:In this procedure, the surgeons at the Spine Surgery India clinic will remove the part of a disc that is compressing a nerve.
The above-mentioned procedure can be performed as an independent surgery or your surgeon can combine them together. For example, a laminotomy procedure may be done together with a discectomy; however, the best person is your surgeon who will determine that which procedure or procedures will give you the most relief from the pain.
