NeoV Laser for Spine discectomy Surgery PLDD

PLDD is a minimally invasive procedure for treatment of herniated lumbar and cervical discs. It involves insertion of a micro-needle under X-Ray guidance into the disc nucleus. A fiber is then inserted through the needle and used to deliver laser energy to the nucleus. The delivered laser energy thermally evaporates excessive fluid reducing internal pressure and relieving back pain.

An innovative approach – using neoV1470 – is to treat the bulge itself rather than to vaporize the Nucleus Pulposus. The focused 1470nm wavelength results in a confined effect and an energy efficient procedure.

Procedure and Laser Advantages
The PLDD procedure offer a minimally invasive alternative for relieving back pain. The procedure kit enables microsurgery precision, tactile feedback from the fiber, quick recovery for the patient, and use of only local anesthesia. The laser special features include portability, ease-of-use, high reliability and stability.
