A posterior excision of disc prolapse is a surgical operation designed to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. This operation is carried out under general anaesthetic. An incision is made through the back muscles and the lamina (the bone surrounding the spinal cord).
An undercutting facetectomy is included in this procedure: Any bone that is causing pressure to the nerves is removed from under the small joints of the spine to relieve pain.
