"This procedure is life changing and so minimally invasive that I would tell anyone who has had significant pain for more than eight months that they should look into this procedure. "
"I started with physical therapy. Then chiropractic. Injections. And back to physical therapy. The pain just kept getting worse. I was at my wits end. After the HydroDiscectomy procedure I was pain free; I got my mobility back. Within an hour or two after leaving the hospital I was having lunch out with my wife. It just seemed like a miracle."
"After the anesthesia wore off I felt great. I got up, looked in the mirror, and saw a tiny Band-Aid. I was scared to take it off, thinking I would see a bloody scar, but [all I saw] was just a pin prick. I've had so many surgeries ... having a HydroDiscectomy is the best decision I've ever made!"
"When I had back surgery I was in the hospital for two days and then I had a six-month recovery period. With the HydroCision SpineJet procedure I was in the hospital a couple of hours, out the door, and got on with my life ... I'd been out of work since 1994 with back pain. After this procedure I went back to work; I got my life back again."
"Nobody in my family can believe I can walk again. I can walk. I can do my job. I can do my normal work at home. It changed my life. "

"It's a very easy procedure. It's a very safe procedure with anecdotally great outcomes. Some outcomes I've followed up to 3 years, and the patients are doing wonderfully!"
Dr. Farrid -- Pain Management Specialist
"Percutaneous HydroDiscectomy offers a very good new way of treating pain without having to go to open laminectomy and discectomy. It's great to see patients return to normal levels of activity [following the procedure] and play with their kids, walk their dog, golf, and do the things they like."
Dr. Gannon -- Interventional Pain Management Specialist & Anesthesiologist
"Every patient treated to date with this technique has reported 90-100% pain relief within 48 hours of the procedure. I would strongly encourage other physicians to consider using this technology. It's the most effective and aggressive technique for percutaneous discectomy that's available."
Dr. Algendy - Interventional Pain Management Specialist and Anesthesiologist
"Using water is a good idea because many times we deal with discs that are very dry and difficult to remove compared to other techniques. I find high pressure water better to work with."
