A New Treatment for Chronic Low Back Pain

May 01, 2024 11:12AM ● By Jeaniesa Santiano

Dr. Stephen Roman, M.D., founder of the RegeneSpine, Regenerative Spine and Joint Institute, is now offering a new minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for low back pain—the Discseel® Procedure.

The Discseel Procedure identifies and treats disc annular tears and fissures, which are the true and underlying cause of most spine issues including disc herniations, bulges, degeneration and radiculopathy. The procedure uses a substance called fibrin to seal tears in the spinal discs, becoming a part of the disc, and then promoting the growth of disc tissue. The physician begins the process by looking for torn discs using x-ray images. If a disc is shown to have a tear, fibrin is injected.

The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and improvement in pain usually begins in one to four months. The focus is to provide the patient with a better quality of life, without surgery.

Location: Offices in Pennington and Parsippany, NJ, and NYC. For information, call 973-387-1044, email [email protected] and visit See ad, page 11.

5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
