Percutaneous Epidural Neuroplasty A non-surgical treatment for the management of pain due to degenerative disease of spinal column or disc in early stage. A catheter is inserted to the epidural space (where the spinal nerves pass) through cervical vertebrae or coccyx while the patient is under local anesthesia. Once the catheter is reached to lesion, drug is injected to treat adhesion, inflammation, and edema around the nerves that cause pain. Advantages: No bleeding and the procedure only takes 15 minutes (local anesthesia) Patients can return to daily life three hours after the procedure. Applicable to: Patients with a serious pain in the neck, shoulder, arm, lower-back, or leg Patients who have been tried but have been failed with medication, physical therapy, and nerve treatment for abovementioned pain Patients with recurrent pain after spine surgery Microdiscectomy (SED) A herniated disc is removed by laser using microscope to get 2.5 to 15 times magnified view of surgical area through a minimal incision. This advanced surgical procedure is safe since any damage of normal spinal column or neural membrane can be prevented as much as possible and it has a high success rate. Advantages: Applicable to elderly patients as well who have difficulties of having general anesthesia since this procedure is done under local anesthesia Short operation time (one to two hours) and hospitalization (one to two days) No bleeding and almost no scar with little postoperative pain Very low possibility of nerve adhesion since the bone, ligament, and normal disc nucleus pulposus are safely maintained Applicable to: Patients with spinal stenosis and/or a herniated disc Patients with symptoms of paralysis and/or dysuresia due to spinal diseases
