Are You a Candidate for the Biodisc® Procedure?

Back pain can be crippling, keeping you from living your best life and introducing new limitations to your range of movement and enjoyment of even the simplest activities. Fortunately, the latest in regenerative medicine can allow you to regain your freedom of movement and enjoy life without constant pain.

Dr. Nameer Haider of Cell Bionics Institute has two offices: in Sterling, Virginia and Utica, New York. He developed the Biodisc® procedure as a way to treat degenerative changes in the spine. If you’re a good candidate, this treatment could change your life.

Biodisc basics

Dr. Haider uses the Biodisc procedure to treat severe, ongoing pain caused by spinal damage or disc degeneration or damage. He implements an intradiscal injection technique to carefully place stem cells into damaged tissue in the lower back (lumbar region) or upper neck (cervical region). 

These stem cells can kickstart the healing process in your spine, helping to rejuvenate damaged discs and relieve pressure from pinched nerves. This is known as intervertebral disc regeneration. While you’d probably be slated for spine surgery otherwise, this procedure gives you another chance at natural healing. 

Dr. Haider has trademarked the Biodisc procedure, which he specifically developed to reduce the need for patients to have invasive surgical procedures like spinal fusion or discectomy. 

Candidates for the Biodisc procedure

Dr. Haider may recommend the Biodisc procedure for you if you’re suffering from either of the following:

Degenerative disc disease

Separating each of the vertebral bones of your spine is a rubbery cushion, or disc, that acts as a shock absorber. As you age, these discs thin. If you have degenerative disc disease, your discs thin more rapidly. As the space between bones is reduced, nerves can get pinched, causing pain in the back, hips, and legs.  

Herniated disc

If there’s a tear in the outer layer of a disc, the soft, gel-like center can bulge out. The herniated disc causes pain in and of itself, but it can also put pressure on nerves running up and down the spine, causing severe pain when you move.

Your procedure

Dr. Haider develops your Biodisc treatment plan so it’s tailored to your individual problem. He does a complete evaluation to locate the damage and identify the exact source points of your pain. Then he applies the treatment precisely in a simple outpatient procedure here in our office.

He uses X-ray technology to guide the collection of stem cells from your bone marrow. Once the stem cells are prepared for injection, they’re injected right at the damaged disc to promote healing. He may also use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to increase the healing power of the procedure.
