Percutaneous Discectomy

With the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic, Inc. in Beverly Hills, Dr. Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S. has over 25 years of experience performing minimally invasive back pain treatment. He innovated a style of percutaneous discectomy called Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UED) that can ease the following ailments:

Percutaneous Discectomy
  • Neck Pain
  • Arm Pain
  • Leg Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Failed Back Surgery
  • And much more!

Dr. Rezaian performs the endoscopic discectomy procedure by first applying a local anesthesia to the appropriate area, then making a small 1/10" incision. This incision allows a tiny cannula with a camera in it to go inside the body, providing information to the doctor. Then, a percutaneous discectomy is performed via laser, removing the offending tissue. This is an outpatient procedure and generally results in immediate relief of pain.

Laser back surgery is a passion for Dr. Rezaian and his team at California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic, Inc. Many types of specialists try treating back pain, such as physical therapists, chiropractors, and family practitioners. So, turning to percutaneous discectomy is often a last shot effort. As such, Dr. Rezaian's patients are incredibly grateful for their successful surgeries. Dr. Rezaian also believes that lower back pain burdens our economy. Besides perhaps the common cold, lower back pain results in the most number of missed work hours; it also causes a loss of productivity and many early retirements. The economic weight on governments, too, can surpass those of coronary artery disease and diabetes. This is why Dr. Rezaian believes in diagnosing the correct cause of a patient's back pain and then treating it (often through percutaneous discectomy), then getting that patient back to work without pain as soon as possible.
