Percutaneous Disc Decompression

Percutaneous Disc Decompression

The percutaneous disc decompression procedure, also known as percutaneous discectomy, is a minimally invasive technique used to treat herniated discs. During this procedure, a specially trained physician uses a needle to access the herniated disc and remove a small portion of the disc material that is pressing on the nerves. By reducing the pressure on the nerves, this procedure aims to alleviate pain, numbness, and other symptoms associated with a herniated disc.

Percutaneous disc decompression is considered a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open surgery for herniated discs, as it typically involves a smaller incision, less tissue damage, and a quicker recovery time. This procedure is often performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia, allowing patients to return to their normal activities sooner. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if percutaneous disc decompression is a suitable treatment option based on individual circumstances and the severity of the herniated disc.
