Posterior excision is a surgical operation to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the lower spine. The incision is made through the back muscles and the lamina (the bone that covers the spinal cord). Then, the spinal nerve is retracted to one side and the disc removed. This relieves pressure on the spinal nerve column.

This treatment includes Microdiscectomy: A 6-foot microscope allows the surgeon to complete the operation with a small incision, making the surgery minimally invasive.
