True minimally invasive back surgery is what we specialize in. that means a tiny incision, outpatient (no hospital), minimal pain and without significant blood loss. The advanced procedure is usually performed with an incision about the size of a dime. Through that small incision, bone spurs, herniated disks, or formal sterosis, can be wired. The procedure usually takes under an hour.
Percutaneous Discectomy is a a procedure used to treat herniated or bulging discs. Through an incision smaller than half a gran of rice, the painful discs can be repaired. This is usually done without general anesthetic and is always done outpatient. There is no blood loss with the procedure and minimal pain. Recovery is quick and simple. Usually the disc is shrunk or removed with radiofrequency probe or laser.
