Viadisc therapy is a cutting-edge procedure in the treatment of various spine-related conditions. Viadisc represents a remarkable advancement in non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments for back pain, bringing hope to those for whom traditional treatment options have failed.

What is Viadisc?

Viadisc therapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure designed to relieve back pain caused by various spinal conditions, including but not limited to herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. This therapy is based on the principle of intradiscal biologic treatment, which involves injecting a patient’s discs with purified disc material to facilitate disc healing and thereby alleviate pain.

What Can Viadisc Treat?

Viadisc is effective in treating patients with chronic low back pain from a degenerative lumbar disc. MRI of the lumbar spine is required to evaluate if you are a candidate

Degenerative disc disease: This isn’t actually a disease but a term used to describe the normal changes in your spinal discs as you age.

How is Viadisc Administered?

Viadisc is administered through a small needle under X-ray guidance, thereby reducing the risk of injury to the surrounding tissues.

Risks of Viadisc

While Viadisc is a minimally invasive and generally safe procedure, as with any medical treatment, it is not without potential risks. These may include:

  • Mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the injection site, which usually subsides in a few days
  • Infection, although rare, may occur at the injection site
  • Potential allergic reaction to the allograft, although this is extremely rare
  • There’s a slight chance that the treatment might not achieve the desired pain relief. However, this risk is typically mitigated through proper patient selection and precise injection techniques.

It’s crucial to remember that while these risks exist, they are relatively rare and are greatly outweighed by the potential benefits of the procedure for appropriate candidates.
