Call or book an appointment online today to learn how you can avoid invasive surgery with the Biodisc® procedure.
The Biodisc® procedure developed by the team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine uses cutting-edge research and the latest techniques in regenerative medicine. The procedure involves injecting stem cells into a degenerated or damaged spinal disc.
The injected stem cells stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms, such as growth factors and other stem cells. These substances promote cellular regeneration and allow the disc to heal itself.
The team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine uses the Biodisc® procedure to treat many common causes of back pain and neck pain, including:
A rubbery disc provides cushioning and facilitates easy movement between each bone in your spine. Over time, these discs degenerate and lose volume. This may cause your vertebrae to compress the damaged disc and irritate a nearby nerve, causing inflammation and pain.
A herniated disc occurs when some of the soft material inside a disc bulges out through a tear or weak spot in the outer ring. The bulging disc may compress a nerve and lead to inflammation and pain.
First, your provider at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine carefully evaluates your condition and performs a physical exam to make sure the Biodisc® procedure is right for you. Then, they develop an individualized treatment plan for your specific needs.
The team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine performs the Biodisc® procedure on an outpatient basis, so you don’t have to go to the hospital. They begin by collecting stem cells from your bone marrow using advanced X-ray guidance.
Then, they process your stem cells to prepare them for injection. They use a minimally invasive technique to administer the stem cell injection directly to the damaged disc.
About 6-8 weeks after your Biodisc® procedure, you return to OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine so the team can assess your progress. Depending on your needs, they may recommend repeating the Biodisc® process with the addition of another regenerative medicine technique, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
