In brief: Core Decompr. "CD"

Cd can be done as an inpatient procedure with a short hospitalization, but there is a recent trend toward doing it on an outpatient basis.
Patients are usually maintained on partial weightbearing with crutches for 6 weeks to 3 months. Other procedures have higher morbidity complications, and require more vigorous protection from weightbearing, usually 3+ mos.
