About Percutaneous Discectomy
A percutaneous discectomy is an advanced procedure that utilizes a needle and specialized extraction techniques to carefully remove disc tissue that is putting pressure on the spinal nerves. Between each vertebra of the spine is a cushion-like structure called an intervertebral disc. These structures are responsible for absorbing shock and aid in providing support to the spine. When a disc becomes damaged or ruptures, it can cause severe pain in the neck, back, or legs. Tricity Pain Associates is pleased to offer percutaneous discectomy to local men and women so they can get back to living an active lifestyle without unnecessary discomfort. Our team of pain management specialists is honored to be serving the North Dallas communities of Carrollton, Prosper, and McKinney, TX and invite you to call our office to learn more.

A percutaneous discectomy is considered an outpatient procedure that takes about 30 – 60 minutes to perform. At the start of your procedure, we will have you lie comfortably on your stomach on a treatment table as a specialized x-ray machine is positioned over the target area to capture a live feed of your internal structures. The treatment area will then be numbed, and a sedative will be used to keep you relaxed. A long, tube-like needle is then inserted into the back and a specialized decompression device is inserted through the tube to remove the damaged portion of the disc. Once this is complete, you will be monitored for a short period and released to go home.
