spine done today showing bulge L4-5 and huge
extruded disc L5-S1 with left downward
migration. Dynamic studies were normal.

and dragging the left leg with
exaggerated scoliotic stance. SLRS zero degrees
in the left side with pain. There is
weak dorsiflexion left foot -4/5. The left AJ is
diminished in comparison to the right.
Left L5-S1 flavotomy with
foraminotomy left S1 root. The extruded disc
with downward migration was hard in consistency
and with difficulty was mobilized from the

piece-meal fashion and discectomy of L5-S1 was
done with trail to push the extrusion to the
disc space with subsequent removal. The root
became lax and free.
