Do I need a Discectomy?

A robotic-assisted discectomy is the surgical removal of a portion of an intervertebral disc that causes pain, weakness or numbness by pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord.

A discectomy is done to regain normal movement and manage pain caused by a damaged disc. Individuals who need a robotic-assisted discectomy often experience the following conditions:

If you think you are a candidate for robotic-assisted discectomy at The Institute for Robotic Surgery and are ready to get started on your path to pain-free living, please complete our treatment assessment below.

Am I a Candidate for a Discectomy?

Your doctor may recommend a discectomy if more conservative, non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy or medication have failed to relieve pain or if there are signs of nerve damage. Nerve damage symptoms include weakness and numbness of the legs.

A good candidate for robotic-assisted discectomy surgery may present with the following symptoms:

  • Herniated disc confirmed through diagnostic tests
  • Chronic pain in your leg or foot
  • Numbness in your leg or foot
  • Noticeable and progressive weakness in your leg or foot
  • Numbness in the genital area
  • Loss of bladder

If you have a confirmed spine condition, have not seen success or results with non-surgical treatments, you could be a candidate for discectomy. To find out if you are a candidate for a discectomy, contact our Patient Advocates now or schedule a callback at a time that is convenient for you.
