Every experienced spine surgeon, without exception, knows patients who are no better or worse following their spine surgery. While there were successes, it was the countless "failures" that motivated Dr. Kevin Pauza to critically evaluate the decades old spine treatment protocol. Some "old school" surgeons remain dismissive of the relatively new and validated paradigm that recognizes the importance of torn and leaky discs. Torn discs cause symptoms previously attributed to "pinching" of the nerves or other "mechanical reasons." The pinching only contributes to pain when the pinching is in the presence of disc leakage. Leaking discs cause inflammation, making nerves sensitive to even the smallest of mechanical forces.
So therefore, sealing leaky discs stops the underlying cause of inflammation, and this improves symptoms from their origin. Sealing discs makes sense because it "treats the cause, instead of the effect." Fortunately, informed spine surgeons recognize the numerous shortcomings of spinal surgery, and embrace these new scientifically-validated efforts to seal and heal discs.
It's apparent some physicians may never change. There's an obvious financial incentive to maintain the status quo and continue surgically implanting metal fusion hardware. Those surgeons will likely continue fusing until they're no longer allowed to fuse. One state has already stopped allowing fusions to treat pain. In the USA, there's more money made performing spinal fusions than there is in treating heart disease and cancer combined. Spinal fusions are indicated for rare spinal instability caused by cancer or trauma, but not for treating pain. Its easy to see how all spine disc pain begins as small annular tears. Those annular tears increase, leading to disc degeneration, herniations, bulges, dessication, and degenerative disc disease. All are directly caused by the disc's annular tears.
The Discseel® Procedure uses Fibrin, occasionally supplemented with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or stem cells, to repair discs, to decrease pain and allow increased activity. Studies confirm that Fibrin strengthens discs almost immediately - something stem cells can't do.
Degenerative discs are the result of wear and tear on your spine. The Discseel® Procedure is a regenerative procedure that seals disc tears, and then promotes growth to heal those once damaged discs.
These kinds of injuries can occur over decades and are hard to heal due to poor blood circulation the disc. The Discseel® Procedure helps to repair the damage!
Chronic back pain most often reflects disc tears, and disc tears cause disc degeneration, bulges, and herniations, and that's exactly what the Discseel® Procedure treats. The Discseel® Procedure can help! Don't hesitate to contact us for an evaluation.
The type of pain or numbness associated with sciatica can vary, but there are ways to help alleviate it. The Discseel® Procedure offers a logical, simple and non-surgical solution to sciatica.
Disc herniation isn't the direct cause of pain as was once thought. Instead, the leakage associated with herniated discs is responsible for inflammation and pain. With the Discseel® Procedure, you can live your life pain free while doing activities you enjoy. Find out if this life-improving procedure is optimal for you.
