Our back is made of five bone vertebrae, among the vertebrae there are cartilage buildings called lumbar discs.
The lumbar disc causes movement and sensory problems if it is protruding (medically known as hernia). Most of these abnormalities occur at the interval of L4-L5 or L5-S1 (lower back vertebrae).
As we age, these plates are eaten and the likelihood of protrusion increases (the reason for the bending of the back is the corrosion of the discs)

Lumbar disc surgery procedures:
Microscopic lumbar surgery: With a 1-2 cm incision and a microscope and camera, this inserts into the site and the protruding disc is removed and does not require hospitalization.

Closed disk operation methods: A needle is taken into the disc and the crushed disc is then removed and used for mild cases.
In open lumbar disc surgery, the need for hospitalization is cut on the vertebrae and parts of the disc or the entire one are removed or cd insertion is performed if needed and an implant prosthesis is placed instead of the disc.
After the surgery, the lumbar disc will insert a tube at the site of the operation to drain the discharge, which will be removed after a few days.
