Hydrosurgery Lumbar Disc Operating
Lumbar disc disease is known as one of the most important problems that we face. This can be very painful, affecting our daily lives and reducing our business performance. Beside the loss of work power, the prolongation of the event may lead us to a major surgical intervention, and it may disrupt our mental health with an uncomfortable life style.
Now, via the use of high technology, it is not only possible to cure this disease completely without any progress of disease but it is also possible to treat it successfully via a method known as hydrodiscectomy which is a minimally invasive method saving patient from a risky operation. It is possible to cure the lumbar disc disease with water. Using the high technology, the disk between the lumbar vertebrae can be cured by fragmentation and aspiration of the disc. After watching the video, the method can be better understood which may be most appropriate way of your treatment.
What Are The Types Of Lumbar Disc Disease
Disc Degeneration and Black Disc
The number of intervertebral discs in the lumbar region is 6, including T12-L1, L1-2, L2-3, L3-4, L4-5 and L5-S1. Each of these discs may lose their water content at the same time, either alone or in more than one disc. Disc material may become soft and disc may seen black in MR imaging. We call it Disc Degeneration or Black Disc. Such discs cause back pain when you are constantly doing business. These are the reasons for chronic back pain. Under normal conditions, these discs are not operated with open surgical methods. Hydrodiscectomy is very successful in the treatment of this kind of Lumbar Disc Disease.
One or two of these six discs may be torn due to reasons such as heavy lifting, trauma, or improper waist movement. Tearing in the disc capsule causes severe pain which restricts all movements of the patient. In this kind of disease the treatment of the patient takes a long time. Under normal conditions, these discs are not operated with open surgical methods. Hydrodiscectomy is a very successful method in the treatment of this kind of Lumber Disk Disease.
In the case of disk degeneration, disk bulging or anomalous tear as described above, bulging of the disc capsul at the back of vertebra body is called bulging. Bulging usually responsible from chronic back pain. It usually does not cause a neurological problem but the patient has a constant back pain. Hydrodiscectomy is very successful in the treatment of this kind of Lumbar Disk Disease.
Disk protrusion is known as conditions such as coming out more disk material out of the disc than bulging, spinal canal narrowing and right or left nerve root compression due to disease. Disc protrusion is treated with microsurgery or open conventional surgical methods. However, thanks to hydrodiscectomy technology, which makes possible to treat the disc protrusion without any need of microsurgery or open surgical procedures. Patients can be successfully treated with hydrodiscectomy and return to their work by the next day.
This problem is completely different from the disk damage as described above, and means that the disk material has come out of completely from the torn capsule. When disk extrusion is developed, treatment is usually microsurgery. Our physicians also recommend a minimally invasive method known as transforaminal endoscopic discectomy for disc extrusions. You can get necessary information from your doctor.
