Caption: Illustration of lumbar disc herniation at L4/L5 (4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae) and classic surgical treatment. The operation involves moving aside the back muscles, around the spinous process to reach the space between the vertebrae. An incision is made in the yellow ligament in front of the compressed nerve roots. The hernia is removed with special surgical pliers.
