Spinal Decompressions including minimally invasive spine surgery and microscopic discectomy are operations performed with the intentions of clearing a blockage. Typically, the canal is accessed and a nerve root isolated, protected and retracted. The blockage of a herniated disc or spinal stenosis is cleared followed by relief of sciatica and or radiculopathy.
