1. interventional methods
- IDET (Intradiscal electrothermal therapy)
This method is suitable for use on herniated discs that are causing back pain but not irritating or compressing the nerves. Using radiographic monitoring, a special probe is introduced into the affected intervertebral disc. A controlled flow of heat is sent to the probe, causing a physicochemical reaction in the collagen fibers of the disc, resulting in shrinkage of its annulus fibrosus.
In this minimally invasive method, a special probe is introduced into the affected intervertebral disc under radiographic control. Using the coblation technique, thin layers of cells are obliterated by a plasma ion field generated around the tip of the probe. This is a gentle way of removing tissue, and the procedure shrinks the disc, thus reducing pain.
2. Monosegmental or bisegmental decompression with fusion using TLIF
(transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion)
3. Monosegmental or bisegmental decompression with fusion using ALIF
(anterior lumbar interbody fusion)
