FEATURING Trigger-Flex® Bipolar System
The Disc-FX® System is an innovative, minimal access spine system designed to efficiently access the damaged disc without injury to surrounding disc anatomy.
Disc-FX® features a patented navigational device called Trigger-Flex® Bipolar System which was specifically designed to access and treat the diseased portion(s) of the disc.
The Disc-FX technique combines 2 minimally invasive disc and spine procedures for back pain:
(1) Thermal procedure to reduce the volume by evaporating disc tissue (ablation)
(2) Removal of protruding or prolapsed disc tissues using surgical micro-forceps (nucleotomy).
Bulging, or herniated, disks occur when the spongy center of a disk in the vertebrae pushes out through a tear in the outer, rubbery portion of the disk. Common cause of bulging disks are aging and injuries. A bulging disk can push against the spinal cord and nerve roots, leading to severe pain and problems with mobility.
Disc-FX is a method of minimally invasive degenerative disc therapy. During the procedure, your doctor will use a needle to safely access your injured disc without causing any damage to the surrounding area.
A tube is then inserted and the needle removed. A device called Trigger-Flex® is used to decompress the disc and correct the herniation. This device is also used to close any tears in the disc. Safe and effective, Disc-FX has the ability to quickly reduce pain using several therapeutic techniques in just one treatment.
