  7. 7. Case 1-Contained Disc Herniation
  8. 8. Management : Disc Herniation Percutaneous Ozonucleolysis + Transforaminal L5 and S1 Needle is inserted into the centre Under fluoroscopic Guidance of the Disc and ozone is Injected. Correct level of the prolapsed . Pain relief starts usually within disc is identified one week and ozone takes 3-4 weeks for its complete effect
  9. 9. Management : Disc Herniation Percutaneous disc decompression Minimally invasive procedure using small needle and probe to remove disc material of prolapsed disc ,releasing pressure on nerves and relieving pain in most of the patients of prolapsed/ bulging / slipped disc
  10. 10. Management : Case 1 Percutaneous Disc Decompression Rotating tip removes small portion of disc material. Because only enough of the disc is removed to reduce pressure inside the disc, the spine remains stable. Insertion site covered with bandage. Recovery is fast as unlike surgical decompression no bone or muscle is cut. 2-3 days of bed rest and may return to normal activity within one week.
