One of the many treatment options that HealthSpine provides is HydroDiscectomy, a minimally invasive procedure which is designed to relieve the pressure caused by a bulging disc. HydroDiscectomy is also known as Percutaneous Discectomy or Percutaneous Disc Decompression.
If your pain is caused by a bulging disc, HydroDiscectomy may be a treatment option for you. A bulging disc may be putting pressure on a nerve which may result in your pain. The HydroDiscectomy procedure is designed to relieve that pressure and pain by removing the disc material that is causing the bulge. The procedure usually only takes about 30 minutes and you go home the same day. It is done under local anesthesia and most people report feeling significantly improved almost immediately. One of the many advantages to HydroDiscectomy is that people are able to return to normal activities quickly after the procedure.
