ABSTRACT
At 1975 Dr. Sadahisa Hijikata presented a paper on percutaneous lumber discectomy in a Japanese paper, Journal of Toden Hospital. The title of the paper was, percutaneous nucleotomy: A new treatment method for lumbar disc herniation. At that time almost nobody noticed the great role, that this method under local anesthesia will play. From the early time I myself know this method and sometimes observed how this surgery could be done in the Tokyo Denryoku Hospital. I surprised, this small surgery (at that time there was no word: Minimally Invasive Surgery) can solve symptoms of patients of lumbar disc hernia. But to regret, I and my colleagues, who saw this technique with me, could not notice the worth of this surgery. Doctors in the United States and European countries noticed the worth of this method first. This great sensation, such a small surgery can solve the symptoms of lumbar disc hernias, developed not only PLDD but also several minimally invasive spine surgeries. It can be justifies to say, the percutaneous lumbar discectomy opened the door of minimally invasive spine surgery at present.
