Avoid Back Surgery with Regenexx
In many cases, torn discs will heal on their own with rest and time, though the area will be more prone to repeat injury and degenerative disc disease. In the event that symptoms don't lessen over time, however, the common orthopedic option is spinal fusion, a procedure in which two vertebrae are screwed or fused together. Spinal fusions have been shown over time to be no more effective than sham or placebo surgeries while complications occur in 25% of fusion patients.
During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage around the disc to promote natural healing of the tear. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for opioid pain medications or time off of work. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
