frequently asked questions.
The Disc-FX® System is an innovative, minimal access spine system designed to efficiently access the damaged disc without injury to the surrounding disc anatomy.
It is a minimal access procedure performed on an out-patient basis whereby the patient will go home the same day of the procedure with only a small bandage on their back. Disc-FX® is performed using x-ray guidance to accurately place the Disc-FX® System into the disc. The patented Disc-FX® device is then inserted into the center of the disc where tissue is precisely treated and/or removed. As a result, disc pressure is reduced, which eases symptoms.
Patients with symptomatic, contained lumbar disc herniations that have not responded to conservative treatment, may experience relief from a Disc-FX® procedure. Typical signs of a contained lumbar disc herniation are lower back pain or pain radiating down the leg accompanied by some lower back pain.
