Numbness in the lower back and acute pain in the same area when trying to walk or stand upright are common issues reported by most people. These symptoms may point the finger towards Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Discectomy (MILD) is a method used to treat Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves within. This creates acute pain and one might find numbness on the lower back when standing upright or walking. Thickening of ligament tissues, bulging of vertebral discs or growth of an extra bone may be the reasons. Aging is, however, the most commonly found reason for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
This is a surgical procedure done with a small incision at the lower back but seldom is anesthesia used. Implants or stitches are also not required for the purpose. The cause for the pain like excess ligament tissue, extra bone, bulging that creates problems with discs are all incised out from the body and it creates instant relief to the patient. The doctor might suggest physical rest for the patient to keep him away from strenuous physical activities.
Though MILD procedure reports very high rate of success, it should be done with utmost care and medical expertise. Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a well trained and an experienced micro and Endo vascular neurosurgeon have successfully carried out many such surgeries with the help of a dedicated team.
