What is the Discseel®Procedure?

The Discseel® Procedure is a minimally invasive regenerative spinal procedure that aims to repairrestore and heal your damaged and degenerated disc.

Every experienced spine surgeon, without exception, knows patients are no better or worse following their spine surgery. While there were successes, it was the countless “failures” that inspired the creation of a much less invasive procedure to combat degenerated discs and chronic back pain.

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. The Discseel® Procedure has successfully treated the following conditions:

  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Annular Tears
  • Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Herniated Disc
  • Sciatica

Here is What to Expect

Consultation

During the in-person consultation you will speak directly with Dr. Hussey 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.

Annulogram

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.

Treatment

During the Discseel® Procedure Dr. Hussey 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.

Recovery

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.

The Discseel® Procedure Vs. Spinal Fusion

THE DISCSEEL® PROCEDURE

SPINAL FUSION

See how the two procedures compare:

For decades, physicians have been recommending spinal fusions to patients, only for them to fail. These life-altering procedures have 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 lead to the creation of the Discseel® Procedure. So how do the two procedures compare to each other? Here are some facts:

  • In over 40% of patients that receive 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.

  • The Discseel® Procedure is a non-invasive outpatient procedure, whereas a spinal fusion is an invasive procedure that leaves scars, hardware and requires days of recovery in a hospital.
