WHAT IS INTRADISCAL STEM CELL THERAPY?
Intradiscal stem cell therapy, also known as intervertebral joint therapy, or intervertebral disc therapy, is a novel way to treat different disc pathologies and is the only known treatment that can regenerate discs in the spine. This treatment makes it possible to avoid complications associated with surgical procedures. When necessary, adjacent structures such as facet joints, sacroiliac joints, and surrounding nerve roots, are treated.
