Where Can I Have Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) in Europe?


Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) is an innovative aproach which is getting popular amongst patients and surgeons in the treatment of herniated disc as it reduces the post operative hospitalization and recovery time.



Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is a surgical procedure used for the decompression of the lumbar disc space and removal of nucleus pulposus (the central portion of an intervertebral disc) via a posterolateral approach, through a cannula. The method is recommended for patients with nonsequestrated lumbar disc herniation with an intact dorsal longitudinal ligament.

Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is a step advance from lumbar microdiscectomy, and is used for safe and sparing excision of herniated disc material. In local anesthesia, a cannula is placed at the dorsal lateral border of the disc. The disc space is opened and the nucleus pulposus is removed under intermittent endoscopic control (discoscopy).

The performance in local anesthesia, the atraumatic extraspinal approach, the reduced time of hospitalization as well as the reduced time of work incapability are the main advantages of this procedure. Individuals suffering from chronic low back pain and disability may benefit from a PELD procedure. PELD has been found effective also in the management of spinal tumors and structural deformities.


Advantages of PELD

  • is conducted in about 60 minutes, under local anesthesia with mild sedation
  • no damage for muscles, ligaments or normal tissues
  • minimal blood loss during surgery
  • the patient can be discharged in 24 hrs, and no prolonged bed rest is required after surgery
  • early return to work
  • very efficient for old and medically compromised patients

Сильні болі в спині та ногах останнім часом надзвичайно посилилися. Особливо після тривалого стояння сильно боліла ліва нога і поперековий відділ. Я боявся йти до лікаря. Наш родич у Туреччині порекомендував нам лікаря Доктор Толга заявив, що він його друг. Ми поїхали лікуватись до нього в Туреччину. Наша операція та лікарняний процес були дуже комфортними. Він і його товариші по команді дуже піклувалися про нас. Доктор Толга дуже добре піклувався про нас і допомагав нам. Доктор Толга; Дуже чесний і поважний лікар. Ще раз дякую вам.
