Percutaneous Discectomy

Now there’s a new option for patients suffering from low back and leg (radicular) pain due to contained disc herniations, especially for those who have failed conservative treatments and are interested in trying minimally invasive options prior to considering traditional back surgery.

The procedure is called Percutaneous Discectomy. It is performed under x-ray using local anesthetic (sometimes with light sedation) and is much less invasive than traditional surgical treatments.
