Caption: Microsurgery. Neurosurgeon conducting microsurgery on the spinal disc of a patient, in a hospital operating theatre. The zoom effect of the image gives the impression of motion. The surgeon wears an illuminating device on his head, and magnifying lenses may be attached to his glasses. A full-body suit, including face mask and gloves, maintains sterile conditions. Spinal disc surgery may be conducted when an intervertebral disc ruptures or slips (slipped disc). This can cause painful and disabling pressure on the spinal cord or on a nerve. Microsurgery may be required. Microsurgery is used for surgery on delicate or inaccessible tissues using fine operating instruments.
