How the Biodisc® Procedure Can Benefit Your Spine

Our spine supports our entire body as we go about basic tasks like walking, standing, and bending over. However, getting older can lead to changes in the spine, including herniated discs and degenerative disc disease. If you or a loved one is struggling with spinal problems and back pain, the Biodisc® procedure may be the perfect solution. 

The CellBionics Institute has two locations, in Sterling, Virginia and Utica, New York. Working at both locations, Dr. Nameer Haider developed the revolutionary Biodisc procedure, and he provides it to patients to help heal damaged spines.

Biodisc 101 

The Biodisc procedure is used to treat back pain caused by herniated or worn-out discs. This is done by injecting stem cells directly into your spine. From there, the stem cells encourage a healing response. 

Your body will begin rejuvenating the damaged discs, also known as intervertebral disc regeneration. This is a minimally invasive procedure that harnesses your own body’s healing abilities, so your recovery will be much faster and easier than with traditional spinal surgery. 

The Biodisc procedure targets damaged discs, which makes it an invaluable treatment for pain caused by herniated discs or degenerative disc disease. Herniated discs are damaged discs that bulge and pinch the nerves in your spine, while degenerative disc disease causes your discs to become worn-down and narrowed.

If you’re suffering from chronic, severe pain, you might be looking into back surgery as a solution. The Biodisc procedure provides one last chance for your body to heal itself naturally, without the need for invasive surgery and a lengthy recovery. 

What to expect from surgery 

The best thing about the Biodisc treatment is that it’s tailored directly to you. Dr. Haider will evaluate each disc in your spine, locating the damage and pain sources. Using X-ray technology, he can pinpoint the location of the stem cells in your bone marrow, collecting them and processing them for use during the procedure. 

The stem cells are then combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is also taken directly from your own body. This increases the efficacy of the healing injections, because your immune system will automatically accept your own DNA. This makes it easier than relying on donated cells or synthetic substances. 

A special, intradiscal injection technique is used to make sure that every disc is properly treated, including the upper (cervical) and lower (lumbar) regions. If the treatment succeeds, your spine will begin to heal, and your pain should be alleviated.
