slide2
Discectomy and Neural Decompression (D.N.D.) is a Minimally Invasive, Natural Opening procedure used to both diagnose and treat Inter-vertebral discs and Spinal Stenosis.
slide4

Using live x-ray for guidance, doctors insert an endoscopic fiberoptic scope, like a small tube, through a small incision in the skin, into a natural opening at the base of the spine.

slide6

Doctors examine the inside of the spine and the discs of the lower back, from both sides of the spinal canal, to identify any tears, ruptures, herniations, bulges, or other abnormalities.

slide7

Doctors find inflammation and actually diagnose the source of pain!

  • Doctor then use a number of instruments to shrink the damaged disc(s), or spinal stenosis, and relieve pressure on the spinal nerve(s).
slide9

Patients are returned to Riverviews recovery area and are usually discharged approximately one hour after surgery. Patients can walk the same day as their procedure, and can start gentle physical therapy exercises the next day!

  • Many patients can return to work and resume normal activities the following day, and most can return in one week.
