What is the best way to treat lumbar disc?
There is no best way to treat disc. Each condition has what suits it among these treatment methods, which depend on many factors that determine the appropriate intervention, but finally, it is better to choose the safer and less dangerous method.
What are the advantages of non-surgical intervention treatment?
We call it an operation only because it takes place inside the operating room. It is a minimally invasive procedure, in which no incisions or cuts are made.
Endoscopic herniated disc treatment (DISK-FX) is one of the easiest and safest methods that does not take a long time, so the patient does not need to stay in the hospital for several days, such as surgeries, but he/she can discharge from the hospital on the same day.
The recovery period is short and does not exceed three days to be spent at home.
There is no need for the patient to undergo the fixation of screws and plates to fix the spine after the surgery.
Endoscopic herniated disc treatment (DISK-FX) is the final, not temporary, treatment of the discs.
It is suitable as a medical procedure for all ages, including the elderly and obese persons.
The inflammation is rare and almost non-existent, so there are no wounds, bleeding or blood transfusion during this procedure, but the patient shall follow the medical instructions correctly to avoid problems after that and achieve the desired results from the treatment.
