Thoracic Discectomy

best thoracic surgeons plano tx

In the past, thoracic discectomy, which is the surgical removal of the herniated portion of a disc, was an invasive and tricky procedure because of the location of the discs and all the surrounding organs. But now this surgery can be performed with the help of an endoscope and an X-ray that allow for the surgery to be carefully executed through tiny incisions. The removal of the herniated disc portion relieves pressure on the nerve roots and reduces pain.
