Advantages of PELD : Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy Surgery at Best Spine Surgery Hospitals in India


Published on

PELD or Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy is an advanced minimally invasive spine surgery done for the decompression of the lumbar disc space and removal of nucleus pulposus via a posterolateral approach. PELD is also a good treatment option in management of spinal tumors and structural deformities also in patients whose pain threshold is low or who are not responding well to conservative treatments like pain killers, anti inflammatory drugs and rehabilitation.

Advantages of PELD : Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy Surgery at Best Spine Surgery Hospitals in India

  1. 1. World's Most Advanced Medical Treatment in India - Get free Expert Medical Opinion and Treatment Estimate Cost Advantages of PELD (Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy) Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) is a unique approach which is quickly getting popular amongst patients and surgeons in the treatment of nonsequestrated disc herniation (disc prolapse) as it reduces the post operative hospitalization and recovery time. An advanced minimal invasive technique, Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is performed for the decompression of the lumbar disc space and removal of nucleus pulposus via a posterolateral approach. In addition to decompression surgery, the technique has been found effective in management of spinal tumors and structural deformities. This surgery is recommended in patients who fail to respond effectively to conservative treatment with pain killers like NSAIDs (Non Steroidal Anti inflammatory Drugs) or when the pain threshold is low. In this form of surgery, an instrument called endoscope is used and the whole surgery is done under local anesthesia with the patient fully awake during surgery.
  2. 2. Who may require PELD? Individuals suffering from chronic low back pain and disability may benefit from a PELD procedure. It is often used to treat patients suffering from degenerated discs, bulging discs or herniated discs that compress upon the surrounding structures within the spinal canal causing nerve compression, sciatica and low back pain. It can also be used if the patient fails to respond to conventional management therapies including direct injection therapies for three months or more. The surgery is also found to be successful in resection of spinal tumors, fusion and structural deformities of the spinal cord. Advantages - Under the local anesthesia, the elderly patients or even the diabetes patients could tolerable the procedure. - Cosmetic effects since it is minimally invasive spinal surgery. - It preserves vertebrae and normal nucleus pulposus and removes only the lesional site so that there is no risk of evoking the neural adhesion. Bloodless surgery, no transfusion is required. - It saves the time and the costs. 75% of the patients discharged on the same. - Due to rapid recovery, comparing to open surgeries, it is recommendable for the workers or students with the desire of early return-to-work. Surgical Techniques - Patient is in prone position under the local anesthesia so as to communicate with the surgeons and nurses. The surgeon inserts the thin wire into the disc. With the 0.6cm (diameter) of endoscope, the surgeon could observe the inside with safety. With the better view under endoscope, minute forceps, radio-frequency, and Holmium-YAG laser, the surgeon could make the disc shrink so as to diminish the pain. This treatment, regarded as the third generation, is more advancing that the previous first, second generation laser therapy with following additional effectiveness. - Minimized excision effect (with laser, as fine as hair, which could approach into the small and narrow spinal canal) - Prevent lumbar pain effect (pain nerve that distributed to posterior annulus fibrosis) - Disc diminishing effect (diminish the extruded disc) - Disc intensifying effect (remodeling the collagen component of disc material) - Hemostasis effect (coagulation)
  3. 3. Indications This surgical technique is in between the conservative therapy and open surgery. Therefore, either lumber disc herniation or extraforaminal stenosis is an indication, which shows no improvement after conservative therapy. Prognosis Successful rate is 93% and 7% showed the recurrence. The 7% recurrence was due to combined spinal canal stenosis. Most Advanced Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) Surgery in India Our network hospitals have the most advanced spine surgery facilities. The spine surgeons here use minimally invasive and computer guided techniques in spine surgery. In a Minimally Invasive spine surgery the surgeon makes a few small incisions unlike the open surgery where a single large incision is made. Minimally Invasive spine surgery has several important benefits for the patients. If you have been advised spine surgery your first choice should be the latest minimally invasive technique developed by our world best hospitals in India.
