How Much Downtime Follows Herniated Disc Laser Surgery?

With traditional open back surgery, you can spend more than a month in recovery and expect to wait weeks before returning to normal activities. The propietary eDiscSculptTM Technique available at Datta Endoscopic Back Surgery and Pain Center revolutionizes recovery through an innovative outpatient laser surgery.

Patients who have laser spine surgery can expect about a week away from work, as opposed to about six weeks for traditional spine surgery. You'll probably also spend about six weeks away from physically strenuous activities like weightlifting. Your doctor will help determine which activities are appropriate during each phase of the recovery period.
