Discseel® Procedures Performed1
Avg Spinal Fusion Successes3
Before you decide to permit screws in your spine and give up more than 30% of your mobility you should see how the Discseel®Procedure compares.
For decades, physicians have been recommending spinal fusions to patients, only for them to fail. These life-altering procedures have to lead to some of the highest percentages of surgical failures and opioid dependency among surgical patients. So the real question is: why are doctors not recommending a procedure that has greater success? It's simple. An average spinal fusion patient is worth between $250,000 and $750,000 in insurance payouts over the patient's lifetime. It was the high failure that leads to the creation of the Discseel® Procedure. So how do the two procedures compare to each other?
In over 40% of patients that received a spinal fusion, the fusion does not address the long term source of the pain.
At least 1/3 of all spinal fusion patients need a second or third fusion of their spine within 10 years.
The Discseel® Procedure has been successful in permanently relieving back pain in 70% of patients that had a previous failed spinal procedure, such as a spinal fusion.
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.
After the Discseel® Procedure most patients are walking within the first 24 hours. Immediately after the procedure, your damaged disc will start healing, which is a continuous process over the next 12 months.
