In a short period of time Aster MIMS Kottakkal has performed more than 1500 successful PELD Procedures. Around 42.4% young individuals in India are affected by severe back pain and many of them require surgeries. The present surgeries involve cutting of tissues including back bone which causes severe pain, longer hospital stay and rest. Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is introduced as a minimal invasive spinal technique for lumbar disc herniation. 

Benefits of PELD

  • Minimally invasive procedures 
  • Small scar
  • Minimal blood loss 
  • No general anesthesia, under local anesthesia 
  • Faster recovery and rehabilitation 
  • Reduced hospital stay and return to work, and lesser risk of spinal instability 
  • An effective alternative to open discectomy 
  • Selective endoscopic removal of an epidurally extruded disc fragment 
  • Initial landing is close to the target as possible 
  • Complete herniotomy after thorough release of annular anchorage 
  • The definitive end point of the procedure is free mobilization of neural tissues, not direct exposure of neural tissues
