The Discseel® Procedure allows patients to permanently relieve low back pain and neck pain, to avoid surgery. All low back pain, no matter what it’s cause, originates from torn discs. Torn discs lead to disc herniations, degeneration, and bone spurs. The Discseel Procedure utilizes the FDA approved Biologic Fibrin Sealant, allowing patients to avoid risky spinal fusion, discectomy, laminectomy, and other surgery. Only the Discseel Procedure is proven to seal discs and cause discs to heal. No other treatment, including stem cells or surgery, corrects the underlying cause of low back pain and neck pain. Surgeons attempted sutures, minimally invasive fusion and discectomy, stem cells, and other injections. All other injections failed because they predictably leaked from damaged discs. The Discseel Procedure has excellent long-term outcomes proven in peer-reviewed literature.
People suffering with low back pain or neck pain caused by Degenerative Disc Disease or disc herniations have one or more torn discs. MRIs cannot detect those tears and surgery cannot repair those tears. Only annulograms can detect those tears and only the Discseel Procedure can repair those tears. Permanently. Repairing tears is necessary because torn discs leak their gel, inflaming mini-nerves within the disc’s annular layers (nociceptors), and inflaming spinal nerves pass outside those discs, into the arms and legs. Over time, those tears also dry out discs, leading to disc degeneration and bone spurs.
In summary, the Discseel Procedure is eloquently simple and logical, forever changing the spine World. Likewise, the lightbulb invention was eloquently simple and logical, also changing the World. It’s exciting to live in this time which separates fusions from the Discseel Procedure, just like it was living in the time which separated the candle from the lightbulb. We’re excited that our patients are on the “better side” of that time-line.
Discseel®Procedure vs. Spinal Fusion
Before considering spine surgery, ask any spine surgeon to compare the Discseel®Procedure to fusion…with truth and facts only.
DISCSEEL® PROCEDURE PATIENT
Why the Discseel Procedure is finally replacing fusions
Since 1911, (the year of Ford’s Model-T,) spine surgeons began performing fusions; but fusions were only meant to mend broken spine bones and not treat disc pain. Then decades later, either to maximize income, or because surgeons had no other treatments, surgeons began fusing almost everyone with low back pain. However, in recognizing that automobiles improved significantly since the Model T, shouldn’t spine treatments also improve? Fusions soon generated very much money, and so “the cat was out of the bag.” Although fusion didn’t have good outcome data, spine surgeons fused and prospered and the fusion industry grew. Fusions made more money than all cancer and heart treatments combined.
Each spine surgery patient’s life is worth $250,000-$750,000 to a spine surgery hospital, because that’s how much a patient generates for a hospital and surgeon. It’s because surgery often leads to more surgery. Is it any wonder that respected surgeons often still criticize new and better spine treatments, such as the Discseel Procedure?
Consider this analogy: The first Chinese researchers who publicly voiced concern about COVID-19 had an uphill battle. Likewise, those spine specialists citing well-known problems associated with fusions have an uphill battle. The spine surgery industry, including its surgeons, doesn’t share information castigating fusions , nor does it promote safer and better treatments such as the Discseel® Procedure. Recently, a major spine fusion company extended their offer to purchase the Discseel Company. They didn’t plan develop and expand Discseel, but instead they planned to shelf Discseel’s intellectual property and patents, to eliminate it as future competition.
SPINAL FUSION VICTIM
Facts comparing the Discseel Procedure to fusion
Over 40% of patients undergoing spine fusions are worse after fusion. Those who experience a few years of relief , unfortunately later suffer new pain because fusions increase forces damaging adjacent discs; “Adjacent Disc Accelerated Degeneration”…ask your surgeon
Over 1/3 of all spine fusion patients undergo one or two additional fusions within 10 years. Recall that annular tears cause pain, and so fusions cannot repair annular tears.
The World’s most respected research group (Oberd) confirmed the Discseel®Procedure improves low back pain, function, and mental health in over 70% of patients treated. No patients were worse, a benefit surgery cannot claim. Many of these successes, first underwent fusion that failed them.
The Process for the Discseel® Procedure
There are four steps to our Discseel® Procedure from start to finish.
During the in-person consultation, you will speak directly with the physician who will perform the Discseel® Procedure. We want to make sure you are confident about the procedure and we will answer all your questions prior to the procedure.
The annulogram is a detailed process that will identify your pain source. It specifically determines if your normal or abnormal-looking discs are leaking. Anything missed by an MRI will show up in the annulogram.
During the Discseel® Procedure your physician will inject a substance called fibrin into your damaged disc, which will seal the disc. Fibrin is an FDA approved biologic that is made from human blood. The entire procedure is observed through live x-rays.
