What exactly is Percutaneous Discectomy?
To relieve pain in most patients quickly, a small needle and a canula device are used in a minimally invasive procedure to reduce a herniated disc. Performed on an outpatient basis, the placement of the cannula in this procedure is guided by the use of X-ray images.

Herniated Disc Treated

For the treatment of herniated discs, this procedure is a great alternative to open back surgery and has both reduced recovery time and is free of the complications of open surgery. It is performed by carefully inserting a small probe through the cannula and into the disc. Once it is turned on, small portions of the disc nucleus are removed through the use of its rotating tip.
