Speaking on this occasion, Dr. Sukumar Sura; Senior Spine Surgeon; Yashoda Hospitals said "There are two surgical options in treating a disc prolapse. One is a traditional open microsurgery. Here a large incision is made in the patient’s back. The muscles of the back are retracted and some bone is also removed. This will expose the nerves and once they are retracted the disc prolapse is exposed. Then the prolapsed disc material is removed, and the neural tissue is adequately decompressed. This will result in a large scar, significant muscle damage and sometimes instability due to excess bone removal. Since the neural tissue is retracted some amount of damage to the nerve is a distinct possibility.
