Live Pain Free with the Discseel® Procedure

Back pain no longer has to prevent you from doing the things you love. Find out how the Discseel® Procedure can get you back to living your life.

What is the Discseel® Procedure?

Kevin Pauza MD, invented the Discseel® Procedure to repair damaged spinal discs. The procedure uses FDA-approved Fibrin, which is a 100% natural biologic to repair and seal damaged spinal discs. Spine surgery, including spinal fusions, can't repair damaged discs. Pauza first used Fibrin in trauma in it's FDA approved indication for: facial reconstruction; for splenic repair following blunt trauma; and to control cardiac bleeding. Pauza next developed the Discseel® Procedure, which uses Fibrin in an "off-label" manner to repair spinal discs. The FDA allows the use of FDA approved Fibrin in an off-label manner in the disc because no other treatment exists, and there's a need to treat damaged discs. The FDA determined that Fibrin is safe and effective in other indications. 

Nothing else exists to repair spinal discs. Surgeons have attempted sutures or ligature to repair discs without success.  Stem cells and PRP fail to reliably help because they leak from damaged discs. Often people suffering from Degenerative Disc Disease are plagued with back pain from one or more torn discs, which inflame nerves within the discs as well as the adjacent spinal nerve causing back pain and leg pain or neck and arm pain. When a disc leaks, over time it can lose hydration and become degenerated. The Discseel® Procedure uses a Fibrin biologic to repair the damaged, torn discs, allowing an individual's body to replace the damaged cells with new cells. Essentially, the goal of the Discseel® Procedure is for the Fibrin biologic to seal and instigate healthy, new disc tissue growth where the tissue is torn, in effort to stop the disc from leaking, and no longer inflaming the nerves. Studies affirm that Fibrin seals discs returning them to normal mechanical strength. Fibrin sealant can allow stem cells and growth factors to stay and help a disc that would otherwise leak. 

The Discseel® Procedure

There are four steps to our Discseel® Procedure from start to finish.

Consultation

After you submit your application, Dr. Wolff will sit down with you for a one on one consultation to review your options.

Annulogram

After your consultation and just before the Discseel® Procedure Dr. Wolff will perform an Annulogram to get a detailed image of your torn disc.

The Discseel® Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Wolff will inject your damaged disc with the biologic Fibrin, repairing the tears in your spinal discs. In less than 90 minutes, your procedure will be done.

Recovery

The recovery process is simple and fast. After the Discseel® Procedure, most patients are walking in the next 24 hours.

The Discseel® Procedure vs Spinal Fusion

For decades, physicians have been recommending spinal fusions to patients, only for them to fail. These life-altering procedures have to lead to some of the highest percentages of surgical failures and opioid dependency among surgical patients. So the real question is: why are doctors not recommending a procedure that has greater success? It's simple, an average spinal fusion patient is worth between $250,000 and $750,000 in insurance payouts over the patient's lifetime. It was the high failure that lead to the creation of the Discseel® Procedure. So how do the two procedures compare to each other? Here are some facts: 

  • In over 40% of patients that receive a spinal fusion, the fusion does not address the long term source of the pain
  • At least 1/3 of all spinal fusion patients need a second or third fusion of their spine within 10 years
  • The Discseel® Procedure has been successful in permanently relieving back pain in 70% of patients that had a previous failed spinal procedure, such as a spinal fusion
