Understanding Discseel®

Discseel® is a non-surgical procedure that uses a proprietary blend of medical-grade adhesive to repair damaged discs in the spine.

Unlike traditional surgeries, Discseel® doesn't require any incisions or general anesthesia, and patients can typically return to their normal activities within a few days.

How Discseel® Works

During the Discseel® procedure, a specialized needle is used to inject the adhesive directly into the disc. The adhesive then forms a strong bond with the surrounding tissue, sealing the disc and preventing any further leakage.

Over time, the adhesive is absorbed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue, restoring the disc to its normal function.

Benefits of Discseel®

There are several key benefits to choosing Discseel® over traditional surgical options.

First and foremost, Discseel® is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn't require any major incisions or general anesthesia. This means that patients experience less pain and discomfort, and can return to their normal activities much more quickly than they would after surgery.


Additionally, Discseel® has a much lower risk of complications compared to surgery, such as infection or nerve damage. This is because the procedure doesn't involve any cutting or manipulation of the spinal cord or surrounding nerves.


Finally, Discseel® is a highly effective treatment option for many patients. Clinical studies have shown that the procedure has a success rate of up to 90%, and patients typically experience significant pain relief within a few months of the procedure.

Is Discseel® Right for You?

If you suffer from chronic pain caused by damaged discs in your spine, Discseel® may be a viable treatment option for you. However, it's important to consult with a qualified physician to determine if you're a good candidate for the procedure.

Factors such as the severity of your condition, your overall health, and your medical history will all be taken into consideration when determining if Discseel® is right for you.

Disc Problems

There are many different problems that can occur with the intervertebral discs. Bulges, herniations, tears, and degeneration are all amenable to treatment with Discseel®.


Discseel® is a sophisticated and targeted injection treatment into the annulus, the outer part of the disc where all the nerve endings are located. The injection seals the tears and promotes regeneration of collagen to strengthen the discs. Many patients treated with Discseel® were advised to get lumbar fusion and successfully avoided this risky and irreversible surgery. Call today to see if you qualify for Discseel®!
