Excision of intradural lesion

The dural sac is the membranous sheath or tube of dura mater that surrounds the spinal cord. An excision of intradural lesion involves removing a lesion from this area.

What does an excision of intradural lesion involve?

During the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision, usually in the back of your neck, and exposure your dura. The membrane is opened and the lesion is then removed. You will be placed under general anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.

What is the recovery period?

Your recovery may vary depending on your condition and the complexity of the surgery performed, however, most patients are able to resume light activities a few weeks after surgery. Your surgeon will tailor your recovery plan to your needs.
