Dekompressor discectomy is a least invasive spinal surgery procedure that removes a small part of a herniated disc that is irritating a spinal nerve and causing back or leg pain. In this endoscopic discectomy procedure, patients are under local anesthesia and comfortable. The skin is anesthetized with lidocaine and a small needle cannula is advanced to the herniated disc under x-ray fluoroscopy. A motorized device called Dekompressor with a rotating tip is then inserted into the cannula. When the Dekompressor is turned on, the rotating device drills and extracts out a small portion of the disc, thus decompressing the disc and relieving the affected spinal nerve. This can provide back pain relief for the patient.
