 Herniated spinal treatment in Italy by laser doctor Tassi, Italy, Europe

Approved by the FDA (Federal Drugs Administration) in 1991 and recognized by AMA (American Medical Association), PLDD is a minimally invasive laser treatment performed using local anesthesia for disc hernia/protrusion. During the procedure, a thin needle is inserted into the herniated disc (the target of the tip of the needle is the center of the disc called nucleus pulposus) under x-ray guidance. An optical fiber is inserted through the needle and laser energy is sent through the fiber (single laser beam power, time pause between each laser beam and total laser energy delivered are parameters that need to be modulated in each patient), vaporizing a tiny portion of the disc nucleus.
