Possible complications
1. Intraoperative bleeding
2. Dural tear
3. Damage to the nerve root during surgery, which can lead to motor or sensory symptoms.
4. Infection
Preoperatively it is important to inform the patient of the suitability of not taking some medications before surgery such as: aspirin, NSAIDs, anticoagulants, warfarin or bisulfate clopigogrel.
The length of the hospital stay depends on a patient’s mobility after surgery. The aim is that patients can wander and be mobilized the same day the surgery took place.
The results from undergoing a surgical discectomy have shown success rates of 80-90%. Likewise, the satisfaction rate for ten years after the surgery has taken place is 72 %. Short- and long-term studies in patients that have undergone surgery have shown significant rates of recovery and improvement of leg pain, general satisfaction with the treatment and with the recovery compared to patients that have not been operated on.
