Foraminal Stenosis  - Treatment
What are the treatments for Foraminal Stenosis ?
Foraminal stenosis  is treated when it causes pain or radiculopathy , which is when the nerves are not functioning properly as a result of being compressed or damaged and causing symptoms such as pain, tingling, or numbness in the hands or feet. Asymptomatic foramenal stenosis, or foraminal stenosis  that does not cause any symptoms, does not need treatment.
Effective treatments for foraminal stenosis  include therapy , interventional pain management  and surgery. The minimally invasive Deuk Laser Disc Repair ® is possibly the most effective surgical treatment for symptomatic foramenal stenosis and uses a laser to “open” up clogged foramen relieving pressure on the nerve root being compressed. This procedure is an endoscopic, laser assisted surgery that uses only a quarter inch incision and is performed outpatient.
