Percutaneous Discectomy


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are committed to providing advanced pain management solutions tailored to your unique needs. If you’re suffering from a herniated disc or related spinal condition, Percutaneous Discectomy may be the key to alleviating your pain and improving your quality of life.

What is Percutaneous Discectomy?

Percutaneous Discectomy, also known as percutaneous disc decompression or percutaneous lumbar discectomy, is a minimally invasive medical procedure designed to treat herniated discs and relieve associated pain. Herniated discs occur when the soft inner material of a spinal disc pushes through the outer layer, causing pressure on nearby nerves and resulting in pain, weakness, and discomfort.


Why Choose Percutaneous Discectomy at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine?

  • Expertise: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our team, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], is comprised of experts in pain management and minimally invasive procedures. We bring years of experience and a commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to each patient.
  • Precise Diagnosis: Before recommending Percutaneous Discectomy, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests, such as MRI scans, to precisely identify the location and severity of your herniated disc. This individualized approach ensures that we target the problem accurately.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Percutaneous Discectomy offers significant relief for individuals suffering from herniated discs. By removing or reducing the pressure on the affected nerves, this procedure can alleviate pain, numbness, and tingling, as well as improve overall function and mobility.
  • Minimally Invasive: Our Percutaneous Discectomy procedure involves only small incisions and specialized instruments. This results in minimal disruption to surrounding tissues, less postoperative discomfort, shorter recovery times, and a reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients experience a rapid recovery after Percutaneous Discectomy, allowing them to return to their daily activities and enjoy a better quality of life in a relatively short time.

What to Expect During a Percutaneous Discectomy Procedure

  • Preparation: We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include fasting for a specified period before the procedure.
  • Procedure: During the Percutaneous Discectomy, a small incision is made, and specialized instruments are used to remove or reduce the herniated disc material that is compressing the nerves. The procedure is guided by fluoroscopy or other imaging technology to ensure precision.
  • Recovery: Following the procedure, you may experience some mild soreness or discomfort, which typically subsides within a few days. You can usually resume your regular activities relatively quickly.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide you with post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure your ongoing comfort and well-being.

Is Percutaneous Discectomy Right for You?

However, the appropriateness of this treatment will depend on your specific diagnosis and medical history.
