What is the most important feature of this treatment?
The use of PLDD has less adhesion and morbidity compared to invasive surgery. Since lumbar disc closure surgery is performed by guiding concurrent and live fluoroscopic images from the disc site and only through the needle, it reduces the side effects of lumbar disc surgery and ultimately reduces the cost of surgery.
Do You Know the Benefits of PLDD Lumbar Disc Treatment?
In addition to treating disc disease and removing post-operative adhesions, this treatment has other benefits, such as:
• Radicular pain relief and low back pain
• Improving the functional status of the patient
• Better patient collaboration in physiotherapy
• Reduce analgesic use
• Improving the quality of life
In this way, the patient does not need to be hospitalized. Recovery is less than open spine surgery. This procedure is also repeatable and, if necessary, open surgery can be performed afterward. The rate of nerve injury after PLDD is much lower than that of open surgery.
Many complications that may occur during open surgery for the patient will be eliminated with PLDD. As a result, it can be considered as a safe and valid alternative to open surgery.
