Percutaneous Disc Decompression
 
 
It is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic. With fluoroscopic guidance, a needle is inserted within the intervertebral disc and material is removed, diminishing the pressure from the hernia to produce pain relief. It requires only a very tiny skin puncture 
It is one of the very rewarding procedure  in small contained disc herniation & usually avoids the need for major backsurgery. 
 
  
 
Percutaneous Nucleoplasty -
 
The procedure is performed under fluoroscopic guidance to accurately place a needle into the disc. Using this minimally invasive approach, a small pathway is made into the disc and a precisely engineered device, known as a SpineWand surgical device, is then inserted through the needle into the center of the disc. The device utilizes Coblation technology to dissolve tissue while preserving nearby healthy tissue.  It is also performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthetia.       
 
     
 
The removal of nucleus tissue relieves pressure on the protective ring around the disc or annulus, typically allowing the bulge to recede, so that the disc no longer irritates the nearby nerve root. Normally, the entire procedure takes less than an hour.
