The Percutaneous Disc Decompression procedure is used in patients who are suffering from pain, numbness or disability resulting from a bulging or herniated lumbar disk. Most often, these patients are presenting with pain in the lower back, which may be radiating into either leg and foot, or both, and is often associated with numbness. It is indicated in certain patients with low back pain only, after further diagnostic testing. Patients with specific pathology and signs and symptoms may qualify for this procedure.
The staff at Redefine Healthcare are very professional, courteous and welcoming. Andrea is always willing to assist you with whatever you may need and she does it with a smile! Dr. Freeman and his team are wonderful; very knowledgeable and very thorough and they work with you to ensure their patients get the treatment they need. I would highly recommend this practice.
The appropriate diagnostic evaluation prior to this procedure will nearly always involve a cervical or lumbosacral spine MRI as well as complete history and physical examination. If the pain is limited to the lower back without obvious radiation into the legs, discography or injection of contrast dye into the disk to further elucidate the pain mechanism may be required. Patients with large herniated discs may not be candidates for this procedure. Patients with bulging discs, small herniations with contained walls, moderate disc herniations may be good candidates for this procedure.
Almost two years ago, I hurt my lower back and was referred to Dr. Freeman. I’m not fixed but my back is doing better with radiofrequency ablations and mild medications. I’m thankful I found such a great Dr. Dr. Jay is also great and staff has always been kind and courteous to me. Would I recommend? Absolutely.
