Disc biacuplasty is a procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to treat chronic pain in the intervertebral discs of the spine. The intervertebral discs are the cushions of cartilage that separate the bones of the spine, and they can be a source of chronic pain if they become damaged or degenerated.
During the procedure, a small needle is inserted through the skin and into the intervertebral disc. A special probe is then passed through the needle, which delivers radiofrequency energy to the disc. The heat generated by the radiofrequency energy causes damage to the nerve tissue and the disc, which can provide relief from chronic pain.
Disc biacuplasty is considered to be a relatively new and experimental treatment option for chronic pain in the intervertebral discs. It is not widely available yet. Disc biacuplasty is done under fluoroscopic guidance (a type of X-ray) or CT guidance. As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with Disc biacuplasty and it may not be effective for everyone. It's important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of the procedure with your healthcare provider to determine if it is the right treatment option for you.
It's important to note that Disc biacuplasty is not the only option for disc pain, and it should be considered as a last resort if other treatments have failed. Your healthcare provider may recommend other treatment options such as physical therapy, medications, or disc injection if appropriate.
