Information about Herniated Disc Surgery using PTED Technique

In a double-publication, the first results of the PTED-study in The Netherlands were published in the British Medical Journal and the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

The effectiveness paper concluded that Full-endoscopic discectomy was non-inferior to open microdiscectomy in reduction of leg pain. Full-endoscopic discectomy resulted in more favourable results for self-reported leg pain, back pain, functional status, quality of life, and recovery. Full-endoscopic discectomy can be considered as an effective alternative to open microdiscectomy in treating herniated discs.

After the study, the Dutch National Health Care Institute proved that a PTED operation for the treatment of a low back herniation is at least as good as common techniques, but it is less stressful for the patient and much cheaper. That is why the Zorginstituut advises the Minister of Medical Care and Sports to reimburse PTED from the health insurance from December 1st 2020.
