A percutaneous discectomy completes the entire procedure through a needle inserted into the skin. Once the needle has been inserted, an instrument is fed through the needle and placed inside the disc. Tissue is then removed from the center of the disc through the needle. This reduces the amount of pressure on the nerves around the disc. The patient will experience less pain and trauma through this surgery compared to more traditional methods because of such a small incision.
The entire procedure lasts around 30 minutes. The Neuroscience Center at The Medical Center Clinic provides the most advanced surgery techniques available. Gulf Coast Pain Specialists works in conjunction with the Neuroscience Center to precisely diagnose the cause of your pain.
