What is the best treatment for my friend's disc problem?
Q: My 25-year-old friend has the following MRI report: Discs L4 and L5 reduced in size; indented thecal sac and compressed traversing nerve roots. Are ozone and laser treatments for this condition available in India?
A:The best treatment option in this case would be microdiscectomy. Ozone discolysis and laser discectomy are still not the gold standards and the outcomes are not as reliable.
