DST (Discseel™) Treatment of a Patient with Spinal Stenosis Advised Previously to Undergo Surgery

Male Patient in His 50s

Inquiry Contents

Constant severe lower back pain and numbness in the buttocks as a result of lumbar canal stenosis. When diagnosed in another hospital the patient was advised to undergo surgery.

The patient was not willing to go through a surgical operation, because of the related risks he had heard of previously and he was hoping to receive outpatient treatment in our clinic.
