Percutaneous Disc Decompression
Percutaneous disc decompression is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional open surgery for the treatment of these conditions.
During the procedure, a small incision is made in the skin and a specialized instrument is inserted through the opening. The instrument is used to remove small amounts of disc material from the affected area, relieving pressure on the nerves and providing relief from pain.
One of the main benefits of percutaneous disc decompression is its minimally invasive nature. Because the procedure is less invasive than open surgery, it typically requires a shorter recovery time and less pain. Additionally, percutaneous disc decompression can be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return home the same day.
Another advantage of percutaneous disc decompression is that it can be used to treat a variety of different conditions. For example, it can be used to treat herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease. It can also be used to treat spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal becomes narrowed, causing pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
Percutaneous disc decompression is generally considered safe and effective, with a high success rate in relieving pain and improving function. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, and nerve damage.
Overall, percutaneous disc decompression is a valuable treatment option for those suffering from herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a high success rate and a shorter recovery time compared to traditional open surgery.
