mLumbarMicroDiscectomy is a series of 3D animation and text movies with English voice-over, each with an image library from the movie, that introduces the viewer to the lumbar microdiscectomy surgical procedure using easy to understand 3D anatomically accurate animated movies.

mLumbarMicroDiscectomy is designed to be used by anyone seeking an introductory understanding of the lumbar microdiscectomy surgical procedure.

mLumbarMicroDiscectomy is part of the Lumbar Spine Library of patient education applications.

Receiving text descriptions or still image education about complicated three-dimensional surgery is inefficient and often ineffective. This is especially so for newcomers to human anatomy.

mLumbarMicroDiscectomy provides an accurate, easy to understand introduction to lumbar microdiscectomy surgery. Tap on the movie’s name to play the movie. Tap on the blue circle to see the still images. Tap on the movie screen to reveal the movie scroll and audio volume control bars. Examine some sample movies on our website at

mLumbarMicroDiscectomy has the following potential benefits:
