Goals Of Treatment

Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy

Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) is a step advance from lumbar microdiscectomy. PELD is a percutaneous surgical procedure for safe and sparing excision of herniated disc material. Even sequestered disc material - regardless of its size and level - that slipped into the spinal channel can be removed with the minimal invasive method.

Advantages of PELD

The PELD offers a number of advantages in comparison to conventional methods:

  1. Immediate pain relief in 95% of the cases - study info needed
  2. Direct access to herniated disc/sequester
  3. The disc-annulus and the ligament remain intact
  4. No general anesthesia, only a sparing local anesthetic necessary
  5. Outpatient treatment
  6. Shorter rehabilitation -study info needed
  7. Faster return to profession and everyday life - study info needed
  8. Small incision (only one stitch) = hardly any scarring
