A herniated disc consists of tiny tears or cracks in the outer layer (annulus or capsule) of the disc. The jellylike material inside the disc (nucleus) may be forced out through the tears or cracks in the capsule, which causes the disc to bulge, break open (rupture), or break into fragments. This is causing severe and constant pain.

Until recently, treatment of an herniated disc included pain drugs, physical therapy and for severe cases treatment consists of surgical procedures associated with prolonged recovery. Both, the disease and treatment, were quality of life affecting.

Nucleoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of moderate disc herniation. The doctor use the percutaneous approach and the procedure consists of dissolving a part of affected disc, so his dimension are decreased, and secondary nerve compression is also decreased.

A herniated disc consists of tiny tears or cracks in the outer layer (annulus or capsule) of the disc. The jellylike material inside the disc (nucleus) may be forced out through the tears or cracks in the capsule, which causes the disc to bulge, break open (rupture), or break into fragments. This is causing severe and constant pain. The disc hernia can lead to a root compression provoking a quality of life degradation.

Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty is a pain treatment for vertebral compression fractures that fail to respond to conventional medical therapy, such as minimal or no pain relief with analgesics or narcotic doses that are intolerable. A compression fracture occurs when pressure on a vertebra causes it to break or crack, often because of osteoporosis. Compression fractures are often extremely painful, and can cause abnormal spine curvature that leads to other serious health problems.
