TMF / TML: Thoracal microforaminotomy/laminectomy

This method is similar to the approach in the cervical spine and gives excellent possibilities for the successful treatment of far lateral disc herniations and bony stenoses. The approach is from the back and the operation is done under general anaesthesia.

The stay in the hospital is normally 3-5 days. When the herniation or stenosis is situated medially, different methods are necessary involving bigger operations.
