Percutaneous Discectomy

Has debilitating back pain sidelined you from work, sports, hobbies, or family and social activities? You could be one of the nearly 10 million men and women who suffer from low back pain caused by a herniated disc. Stryker Disc Decompression is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves pain and restores previous levels of activity without open surgery.

Treatment Options

A herniated disc can adversely affect your ability to perform everyday activities. If your discomfort isn’t improving with conservative treatments such as bed rest, pain medication, stretching, cold and/or heat therapy, you may be helped by an outpatient procedure called Advanced Disc Decompression. This approach completes the continuum of care for patients who want a minimally invasive alternative. It has a high success rate, low complication rate, and is covered by some private insurers.

Multiple clinical studies have shown that Advanced Disc Decompression is successful for 90% of patients. This highly effective procedure reduces pressure on the nerve root by removing disc nucleus while preserving disc strength and future treatment options.
