Hybrid Laser Treatment
"The Hybrid Laser Treatment" is one of the lower back pain treatments. This page explains the contents, features and procedure of the treatment.
What is Hybrid Laser Treatment?
"The Hybrid Laser Treatment" is the advantageous combination treatment of conventional "PLDD Treatment" and "PODD Treatment". It is appropriated for the herniated discs or other lower back pain from severe to mild. The prominent method can be done in only this hospital in Japan.
Generally, a herniated disc causes an acute pain since a part of the intervertebral discs jumps out and stimulates the nerve directly. In "PLDD Treatment", an extra-thin needle is inserted into the affected part, then a laser is irradiated through the inserted needle and evaporates the protrusion of the central nucleus pulposus.
In some cases of lower back pain, the pain may remain nearby the nerve which has been pressed for a long while, or inflammation may be caused. To treat these cases, "The Hybrid Laser Treatment" is developed in this hospital for the first time. It is proved that an ozone gas is effective in relieving the pain and inflammation.
In this way, in "The Hybrid Laser Treatment", removes the fundamental cause - the pressure and protrusion of the nucleus pulposus by a laser as surgical therapy, and suppresses inflammation by an ozone gas as conservative therapy. Operation time is about 20 to 25 minutes, almost the same as "PLDD Treatment" or "PODD Treatment". After the treatment, the patients can go home in about a couple of hours with almost no scar.
