Neuroplasty is the most commonly used method to treat a variety of spinal disorders, including disc
herniation in the waist or neck or spinal stenosis. The method is relatively simple. After local anesthesia, a special "catheter' of 1-2mm in diameter where the end can move freely is inserted into the space of epidural passage to which the spinal nerve passes. Whlle moving the catheter, the narrowed disk gap
and the suppressed nerve are widened.
Balloon dissection of the neural adhesion is a new therapy to treat severe spinal disorders using a specifically designed balloon catheter of approximately 3mm in diameter which is inserted into the tailbone region to widen the narrowed neural pathways.
Epidural endoscopy is a therapy to treat spinal disorders by inserting a catheter equipped with an endoscopic camera and laser into the epidural space through the tailbone. The epidural endoscope provides the same effect as the combined use of neuroplasty and radio frequency decompression of thenucleus pulposus.
