Sciatica is caused by irritation of the nerve roots in the lower and lumbarsacral spine. The nerve roots may be pinched by the narrowing of their pathway, also known as foraminal stenosis, which irritates the nerves and causes pain and other sciatica symptoms, such as weakness, numbness, and shooting pain.
Deuk Spine Institute performs a minimally invasive sciatica surgery with a 95% success rate, no hospital stay, and does not damage the spine. This advanced treatment, Deuk Laser Disc Repair, is so successful patients travel from across the US and world to have their sciatic nerve surgery here.
Sciatica may only affect one side of the body, usually in the legs and buttocks. The pain will radiate down the thigh and into the legs and feet or toes depending on the specific location of the irritation that is causing the sciatica. Numbness in the feet or toes is common in more severe sciatica cases and is commonly described as a tingling sensation in the feet or toes such as when your foot “falls asleep.”
Pain from sciatica can be sporadic and range from mildly discomforting to agonizing. For some, the pain is described as debilitating, even affecting bowel and bladder function in severe cases.

Traditionally, the only way to get sciatica pain relief was with invasive surgery of the spine. Today patients have a better treatment for severe sciatic nerve pain. Deuk Spine Institute’s advanced sciatica surgery, Deuk Laser Disc Repair, is a minimally invasive proprietary method that uses an endoscope to see and repair the problem. It has a 95% success rate, doesn’t damage the bone, and leaves a small quarter-inch scar.
Unlike other methods that call for cutting bone and weakening the spine, or large surgical incisions that can lead to painful scarring, the Deuk endoscopic method can repair your sciatica and minimize recovery time, in some cases reducing recovery time to less than a week! No hospital stay is required, vastly reducing the risk of infection, and the surgery is done on-site to keep hassle to a minimum for our valued patients. Patients leave our facility the same day to recover in the comfort of their own home.
