DST (Discseel™) Treatment of a Patient with Recurrent Back Pain After Surgery_27.04.2021
Female Patient in Her 70's
The patient underwent surgery 10 years ago after being diagnosed with spinal canal stenosis and her condition improved for some time, but later on the pain, numbness and heaviness in her back and legs re-appeared and kept on worsening with the years.
At present, the severe pain and numbness in her back and both of her legs makes her bend forward while walking and take frequent rests before being able to continue.
The patient contacted our clinic for help since she wanted to avoid the heavy burden of another surgical operation.
