Percutaneous Decompression
for Chronic Back Pain

Sciatic nerve impingement is a common culprit for chronic pain. If a disc bulges or ruptures, it can press on your sciatic nerve which may cause pain in your leg or feet, even though the origin of the pain is in your spine. Percutaneous Decompression (Nucleoplasty) is an option for sciatic nerve pain or spinal stenosis is to remove the disc tissue that is pressing on the nerves. Traditional disc-decompression surgery requires an incision to expose the vertebrae and damaged disc and then trim the disc tissue using surgical instruments. Percutaneous decompression offers a less invasive approach.
