Comprehensive Pain Management - Disc-FX System

Disc-FX System safely, rapidly and effectively performs minimally invasive discectomy procedures for contained lumbar spine herniations. The innovative, patented design combines simple, intuitive function with precise surgical results.

  • Less invasive compared to traditional discectomy procedures
  • Minimum annulotomy reduces risk of herniation
  • Multi-functional therapeutic options; debulking, ablation and modulation
  • Manual excision of herniated nucleus through 3.0mm portal
  • Ablation and denervation achieved with use of this device

Safely, Rapidly and Effectively Treat Discogenic Pathologies

  • Manual excision of herniated nucleus
  • Less invasive incision compared to traditional disc procedures
  • Reduces risk of reherniation
  • Multi-therapeutic options; nucleus decompression, nucleus ablation and annulus modulation

Multiple Treatment Options in one system:

  1. Nucleus Decompression/Discectomy
    • Grasping forceps are used to manually remove bulging nucleus material
    • Nucleus material can be collected and sampled for pathology. Doctors generally remove 1-2 grams of nucleus pulposus
  2. Nucleus Ablation
    • Nucleus Ablation can be performed by the device to further break down the nucleus, allowing free fragments to be removed manually via the grasping forceps
  3. Annulus Modulation
    • Due to the steerability of the device, the annular wall which contains pain receptors can be treated and annular fissures can be sealed
