PLDD- Percutaneous laser disc decompression

PLDD- Percutaneous laser disc decompression

Percutaneous laser disc decompression is an effective and cost-effective intervention for the treatment of herniated discs.

"Percutaneous" surgery refers to reaching the target area or organ through skin puncture rather than through open surgery.

Compared with surgery, percutaneous laser decompression surgery is the least aggressive treatment (suitable for nucleus pulposus without prolapse of the outer layer). Pulsed laser vaporizes the protruding disc nucleus pulposus, reducing or eliminating nerve compression and stimulation.


What are the advantages of PLDD?

Short-term operation

No incisions, no scars

Minimally invasive outpatient surgery

General anesthesia is not required

Short recovery period, quick recovery

Complications are very rare

The patient's condition improved immediately after the operation


After PLDD surgery, patients are discharged the same day and are usually able to work within a week after 24 hours of bed rest. Patients who do manual work can't return to work until six weeks after they have fully recovered.
