  • 04 RF- Plasma nucleoplasty

    Radiofrequency nucleoplasty is performed by inserting a microcatheter with a diameter of 0.2-0.3 cm under local anesthesia. Plasma energy generated from the catheter tip blocks nerves that cause pain around the disc, hydrates the disc that compress the nerve root, and strengthens the annulus. Even in the long run, it also helps with degenerative disc recovery.

    1. 01
      If the degenerative change of the disc in the MRI is not severe.
