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

I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on the 8th of July, 2017. From being met at the airport to the return trip, everything was superb! Marion, my driver was so sweet! He took us to see a village with three castles! Martin, a member of staff who was in charge of seeing that patients get where they are supposed to be and SO much more, was welcoming, friendly and did everything and more to make sure I was taken care of. Martyna was very kind and couldn't do enough to make everything more than okay for me. Their English is excellent which was very helpful. The nurses were lovely, friendly and helpful, too. The cardiologist was brilliant. An intelligent, beautiful lady that exuded intelligence and kindness. She was always there if needed. The surgeon was informative and put me at ease. He checked on me many times after the surgery. Philip is on the admin side of the clinic and answered all of my emails pre- and post-op so quickly and came and introduced himself to us before we left hospital. I can't fault this clinic. I was told aftercare is not limited to three or five years, they are available to us as long as we need them. I suppose the one thing I might suggest is go in cooler weather, July was HOT and no air conditioning!!
