Our Dekompressor System offers you clinically proven tools for identifying and treating symptomatic discs.1,2
A herniated disc can negatively affect the ability to perform everyday activities. If your patient’s discomfort isn’t improving with conservative treatments, percutaneous disc decompression may be a treatment option.
What is disc decompression?
A disc decompression is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces nerve pressure due to a disc herniation. It results in minimal annular disruption, preserving disc strength and future treatment options, including surgery.3-5
The procedure generally takes only 15 to 30 minutes to perform and has demonstrated:

Use our Dekompressor System to remove disc material during percutaneous discectomies. You may be able to use the removed material for disc biopsies.
A 12-month prospective clinical study showed that percutaneous discectomies using our Dekompressor was successful in improving pain scores and functional status in patients.6 This minimally invasive procedure reduces pressure on the nerve root by removing disc nucleus.
Additional characteristics of the procedure include the following:
The Dekompressor System’s probe removes a measurable amount of disc material without annular or nuclear disruption.3-6
The Dekompressor Percutaneous Discectomy Probe is intended for use in aspiration of disc material during percutaneous discectomies in the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions of the spine.
Note: Physicians using the Disc Dekompressor should have training and previous experience with discography, intradiscal therapies, and diagnostic or therapeutic percutaneous disc access procedures.
