Lumbar Herniated Disc Case Study
31 year old man presents with excruciating right leg pain. MRI shows a right L5-S1 disc herniation on the right (see arrow). The left image is a sagittal view where you are seeing the spine from the side. The right image is looking at a cross section of your spine. On this view the right side is the left of the image and vice versa.
After minimally invasive surgery, the disc herniation is removed. The remaining “normal” disc is left alone.
