Nucleoplasty

Frequently asked questions about nucleoplasty

Nucleoplasty is a type of therapy meant to help patients with spinal disc pain. A small probe is inserted into the disc that is causing the pain and small amounts of tissue are removed. The probe them emits radio waves and heat to the area which causes the pressure inside the disc to be reduced. When the pressure is reduced within the disc, the pressure around the nerves are also reduced which reduces pain. The disc also sticks out less as well. The procedure takes about 60 minutes.
