Modern Treatment For Herniated Bulging Disc

HydroDiscectomy is a new minimally invasive procedure that uses a high-speed water stream to remove herniated disc tissue, relieving the nerve pressure that causes back and leg pain.

How does it help?

HydroDiscectomy removes damaged or protruding spinal disc tissue. Spinal discs are the cushioning tissue that lie between the vertebrae, or spinal bones. When the outer wall of the disc (the annulus) becomes damaged or weakened through age or injury, the inner part of the disc (the nucleus) may bulge out. This is called disc herniation, disc prolapse, or a "slipped" disc.

HydroDiscectomy represents a clinically proven, minimally invasive method of relieving herniations in the lumbar region and resulting back and leg pain.

Hydrodiscectomy vs traditional open surgery

If physical therapy, pain medications and injections have failed to provide you with sustainable pain relief, HydroDiscectomy may represent your best minimally invasive option. Are you a SpineJet candidate?
