DST (Discseel™) Treatment of a Patient with Spinal Stenosis Advised Previously to Undergo Surgery
Male Patient in His 50s
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.
Diagnostic Imaging Results
Severe low back pain and hip numbness
Overall disc degeneration of the spine, disc herniation, and lumbar canal stenosis was confirmed. At least 4 disc levels need to be treated. DST method is applicable with an average efficacy rate of 80% for the lower back pain and a 73-78% recovery rate for the lower limb neuropathy. Specialized physical therapy for back pain is believed to be beneficial.
