Single stitch procedure, done under local anesthesia & conscious sedation. Patient can be mobilized as early as 2 hours after the procedure. Procedure done on day care basis with vast majority of the patients sent home within 24 hours of the surgery. It’s a “Targeted Fragmentectomy” meaning only the diseased portion of the Disc is removed and normal ligaments, muscles, vertebrae are unaffected, hence recovery is very fast compared to open or microscopic decompression. Ideally suited for people willing to resume their work early. The procedure is very tolerated by Elderly and diabetic patients which are otherwise unfit to undergo Open spine procedures. It is bloodless surgery with no need for blood transfusion. Hence is both cost and time effective. And has extremely cosmetic results.
