Percutaneous laser disc decompression is a minimally invasive treatment for contained lumbar disc herniation. This surgery is performed by passing a side firing laser probe into specific regions of a lumbar or cervical disc under X-Ray control. The laser energy used in the surgery is directed at the degenerate tissues to vaporize unwanted disc material, to reduce pressure on the nerves which are passing over the disc protrusion and to reduce the inflammation in the disc. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. While performing this procedure, a thin needle is inserted into herniated disc under x-ray guidance. An optical fiber is then inserted through the needle through which laser is sent. The laser vaporizes a tiny portion of the disc nucleus. This creates a partial vacuum that draws the herniation away from the nerve root which helps in relieving the pain. Percutaneous laser disc decompression surgery is very expensive.
