Transforaminal Block is given under local anesthesia. It is given under live X-ray (C arm) guidance. Here we numb a part of the back and insert a thin needle inside. The needle is guided with the help of a Live X-ray Machine.

In this procedure we remove a part of the herniated disc through a needle. No incision or surgery is required for this procedure. We have latest equipments to do these procedures.
This procedure is recommended in Sciatica patients who have a significant disc herniation which is pressing on nerve roots and not responding to conservative treatment.
We numb the skin of the back. Under live X- ray (under IITV) guidance, we insert a needle like instrument called Disc dekompressor or nucleoplasty in the back. This instrument goes in between vertebra in to a disc. Once we confirm an instrument position with a live X-ray (IITV) machine, we turn on the machine and use latest techniques to remove a significant part of the disc which is called Nucleus Pulposus. Usually we do this procedure for three minutes. Once significant amount of material is removed we remove the instrument and put a small dressing at the spot from where needle was inserted in the back. (For this Proceudre we use stryker’s decompressor).
For an endoscopic disc removal we remove a bulged disc through an instrument called endoscope. After numbing a skin and underlying muscles we insert endoscope inside a slipped disc. We remove a bulged disc under direct vision. It is an excellent procedure and we can remove a significant amount of disc material with this procedure. Patient can go home on same or next day. After seeing at all reports and MRI scan doctors can decide which procedure is good for patient.
For this procedure we use en endoscope from Karl Storz, USA
Sometimes due to severe Stenosis or loss of sensation in the leg / legs, the patient is required to go for an open surgery called Laminectomy. Laminectomy should be done under general anesthesia.
