Illustration surgery herniated disc

Illustration of a minimally invasive surgery PLDD (percutaneous laser disk decompression).

Design of an illustration of a minimally invasive surgery to treat herniated discs using a laser fiber called percutaneous laser disc decompression (PLDD).

The illustration shows how a thin laser fiber is inserted through the skin of the back into the affected area of the spine during a PLDD. The laser generates heat that vaporizes the interior of the disc (nucleus pulposus), reducing pressure on adjacent nerve roots and structures – which can provide pain relief or improve symptoms of disc herniation.
