Endoscopy, An Alternative for Patients with Pinched Nerves Without Surgery

Surgery is often a last resort when the pinched nerve problem gets worse. Unfortunately, the assumption of paralysis that will be experienced when performing surgery due to a pinched nerve is so entrenched in the minds of many people. As a result, people prefer to seek treatment abroad.

Pinched nerves or herniated nucleus pulpouses (HNP) usually occur due to pressure on the nerves. Quoting the Mayo Clinic, the pressure occurs on the bones and muscles. This pressure disrupts nerve function, causing pain, and numbness.

Now, treating a pinched nerve no longer requires a complicated surgical process like major surgery. Currently, Indonesia has recognized PECD technology that has been found in the world since 1990.

Previously, Indonesian medicine used cervical discentomy and fusion (ACDF) technology. However, unfortunately this technology raises several complications such as dysfalgia, hematoma, implant failure, and so on.

This technology makes the patient's recovery process shorter and minimizes tissue damage. Success depends on the decompression of strong neural elements. This technology may be an option if physical therapy or medication fails to relieve pain caused by pinched nerves.
