Biologics or biopharmaceuticals are a highly-effective class of medicines that are based on naturally occurring proteins and produced using living cells.
Our Biologics are manufactured from highly refined natural substances, found in the human body using state-of-the-art biotechnology manufacturing techniques with high quality standards.
The Discseel® procedure is comprised of highly purified and exact parts of fibrinogen, prothrombin, the two essential blood proteins involved in the formation of a disc healing. We also introduce an antibiotic into the disc to eliminate infection risk.
Patients will be taller because the disc is going to grow. Patients will have less pain, so they may have to stop taking their pain medicine because they won’t need it. Then last, patients become more active because they don’t have the pain that prevented that in the past. After thousands of surgeries we have had no long-term or serious negative side effects from the Discseel® Procedure.
Any person with long lasting low back pain is a potential candidate. A person with low back pain who’s had surgery or a person with low back pain who prefers to avoid surgery is a potential candidate, because the cushion in the back known as the disc is the most common cause of low back pain.
While a specific amount can’t be given until the doctor evaluates your case, Discseel® Procedure generally costs less than 25% of what a spinal fusion would cost.
The Discseel® Procedure is not currently covered by insurance.
That’s okay and is a situation that many of our patients are in. They’ve had prior surgery, they’ve had fusions, and they’ve had metal inserted into their backs. That’s what we work with, and our goal is to help you have a pain free life.
The cushions in the low back are called discs, and the disc is the most common cause of low back pain. We know that the discs can be injured, degenerated, bulged, and herniated. These conditions need to be corrected, and the best way to correct them is to correct them naturally - not to add hardware, plates, rods, or screws. In the long term, these do not help the patient.
