Laser Spine Treatment (PLDD)

Percutaneous laser disc decompression (PLDD) is an endoscopic procedure that uses a laser to treat protruded lumbar discs. Laser Spine Treatment is done as a day case procedure at Nazeer Hospital in Rawalpindi under local anesthesia.

Not All Spine Surgery Requires A Knife

Various techniques known as minimally invasive surgical procedures have been developed to enhance the efficacy and safety of surgical treatment.

The main goal of all of them is to minimise surgical complications and pain after surgery. The patient’s quick recovery is their common aim. Other advantages include the reduction of blood loss during the intervention, the decrease in in-hospital stay, the administration of pain killers, smaller incisions and the preservation of segment posterior mobility. Minimally invasive methods improve the spine’s architecture, cause less tissue damage, and have the lowest associated risk. Minimally invasive procedures come in a variety of forms.

The PLDD (percutaneous laser disc decompression) is a medical treatment that aims to improve the condition of small-to-medium hernias in the intervertebral disc using laser energy. The main goal is to lower intradiscal pressure in the nucleus pulposus to allow the herniated piece to rejoin with the disc, lowering nerve root compression, which reduces pain and improves patient mobility and quality of life.

To conclude, utilising laser energy to vaporise the aqueous content of the nucleus pulposus in the centre of the intervertebral disc is how this technique works. It is anticipated that since it is a minimally invasive treatment, there will be as little tissue damage (muscles, bones, ligaments and nerves) as feasible.

It’s a treatment that may be an option for various degenerative disc states, although it is more popular in lumbar disc hernias. At Nazeer Hospital, we have highly qualified PLDD surgeons to obtain a specialist’s viewpoint, book a consultation.


How PLDD is Different?

One of the biggest advantages of PLDD is that patients can go home on the same day as the procedure. The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia because the procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t require a large incision or muscle disruption like open spine surgery. The rehabilitation process of PLDD treatment is quick, and the patient can be discharged within 24 hours.

The Benefits Of PLDD

  1. PLDD allows relatively faster recovery of the patients.
  2. It is Processed under local anaesthesia.
  3. It is a safe and fast surgical technique, with no cutting and scarring.
  4. During laser spine treatment, only a tiny amount of disc is vaporised. Therefore no subsequent spinal instability during PLDD.
  5. Easily applicable to patients who are at higher risk to open discectomy, such as patients with diabetes, heart disease, decreased liver and kidney functions etc.

The Success Rate Of PLDD

Spinal surgery happens at and around sensitive areas in the spine and spinal cord. PLDD allows surgeons to take advantage of cutting-edge medical laser technology, reducing the risk. Despite the possibilities of complications in such treatments, The success rate of PLDD surgery is more than 75%. It is a proven safe and effective technique.

Nazeer Hospital has a team of surgeons focused on innovative spine pain treatment with the PLDD technique. Our doctors focus on relieving your back pain & neck pain using the latest treatments, therapies, and non-surgical options.
Minimally Invasive Spine Procedure

Minimally Invasive Spine Procedure — A Better Alternative To Spine Disc Surgery

Compared to open spine surgery — The minimally invasive procedure PLDD for spinal treatment is faster, safer and requires less recovery time. This procedure reduces the trauma to the muscles and soft tissues as compared to open surgery. As the incision is smaller in this procedure, it avoids significant damage to the muscles around the spine. Typically, this results in reduced pain after treatment as compared to existing treatments.

The goal of non-invasive spine procedure is to stabilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints by relieving the pressure applied to the spinal nerves due to herniated discs.

It is a new and better way for spine surgeons to offer treatment to those suffering from chronic conditions and pain, providing them with reduced risk and numerous health benefits.

PLDD — Percutaneous Laser Disc Decompression

Laseev – the latest system for minimally invasive spinal disc treatment.

  1. Unbalanced body posture and fewer physical activities are significant reasons for severe back pain!
  2. Approximately 40% of adults over age 40 have degenerative back pain. With time, this pain becomes chronic.
  3. The Protruding and herniated discs cause the worst pain, which may lead the patient to extremities.
  4. With the modern technology and latest laser system, we offer minimally invasive surgery for Percutaneous Laser Disc Decompression (PLDD).
