Advantages of PLDD

This minimally invasive technique avoids the drawbacks of classical surgery :

  • no significant soft tissue injury
  • no risk of fibrosis
  • no extensive hospitalization, outpatient basis
  • no general anesthesia; the PLDD can easily be performed under local anesthesia
  • minimal recovery time of 6 weeks or less
  • no scars
  • lower costs ( 25-30 % of the surgical treatment costs )
