A breakthrough treatment, disc decompression therapy is useful for many types of disc injuries. Also referred to as Percutaneous Discectomy, it is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure used by physicians to treat painful intervertebral disc in the spine. It is quite often preferred over the routine surgical procedure for decompression. It is an X-ray guided procedure that takes a few minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. The procedure is risk-free and acts as an interventional procedure for those patients who do not prefer to opt for surgery.
