Caption: Illustration of surgical access during a classic operation for a herniated disc. 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.
