A Dekompressor Discectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat pain caused when a lumbar disc wall is affected by an expanding nucleus. The expanding of the nucleus creates pressure on the nerves causing pain in lower back and/or legs. A Dekompressor Discectomy consists of first using local anesthetic to numb the site. Then a thin needle is injected to the disk. Finally the excess nucleus material is removed. This will relieve the painful pressure. Discussing the benefits and risks with your doctor is strongly encouraged; results vary on a case-to-case basis.
