About

IDET (Intradiscal Electrothermal Annuloplasty) provides a new alternative to other surgical procedures for patients who suffer from back pain caused by certain types of vertebral disc problems.

This is an advanced procedure made possible by the development of electrothermal catheters that allow for careful and precise temperature control. The method works by cauterizing nerve endings within the disc wall to help block pain signals and is performed under fluoroscopic guidance.

How It Helps

IDET can be helpful in treating chronic lower back pain that is causedby small herniations or tears of their lumbar discs.
