DST (Discseel™) Treatment of a Patient with Severe Leg Pain Caused by Spinal Stenosis

Male Patient in His 50s

Inquiry Contents

The patient was diagnosed with disc herniation in his youth and since symptoms were bearable, conservative treatment was enough to deal with it. During recent years, his condition slowly deteriorated and 3 months ago he started feeling strong pain in his lower back and right leg. He was diagnosed with spinal canal stenosis at another hospital but wished to be treated in our clinic.
