Percutaneous Disc Decompression


Percutaneous Disc Decompression

If you are in pain caused by herniated discus or sciatica, percutaneous disc decompression may help relieve your pain. CP Medicine in Pompano Beach brings relief to patients in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Parkland and surrounding areas every day through their advanced pain management techniques such as Percutaneous Disc Decompression.

Unlike traditional disc decompression procedures involving an incision, in this newer procedure the surgeon's needle is guided by a imaging into the disc where the surgeon removes excess herniated tissue from the disc via cutting and aspiration, by chemical dissolution, or by destroying the tissue with a laser or high water pressure. Coblation is another still newer percutaneous decompression technique that involves creating a plasma that dissolves the tissue thus resulting in a reduction in pain and a quicker recovery.
