Disc decompression is a highly effective procedure shown to be successful for 90 percent of patients.
Multiple clinical studies have shown that disc decompression has a high success rate, and low complication rate. This minimally invasive procedure reduces pressure on the nerve root by removing disc nucleus while preserving disc strength and future treatment options, including surgery.
Disc decompression is typically performed on an outpatient basis and requires only local anesthetic and mild sedation, alleviating the possible complications of open surgery and general anesthesia. This invasive procedure completes the continuum of care for patients who want a minimally invasive alternative to surgery.
