The orthopedic surgeon Subirats Jaume Soler, a member of Top Doctors, directs the Minimally Invasive Surgery Unit, which treats herniated disc using the "triple therapy". This area was inspired by the pioneering unit in Europe (EUNI), directed by Dr. Alberto Alexandre in Italy.
An estimated 80% of the population is suffering from back problems due to poor posture, work stress or injury. In 20% of cases, these conditions result in disc herniation. This condition is common in young or middle-aged people, and is produced by the output of the core of the intervertebral disc backward, irritating and compressing a nerve root leading strength and sensitivity member and spinal area.
From Minimally Invasive Surgery Unit consider essential complement different methods for the treatment of disc herniation, as Orthokine therapy, ozone therapy, the nucleopastia or assisted microdiscectomy coblation (CAM) as alternative techniques to classical microscopic surgery. The innovative therapy Orthokine allows a natural and non aggressive treatment of osteoarthritis with the application of the protective protein interleukin-1 (IL-1 Ra). This protein is extracted from the patient's own blood, and combining it with other components, the conditioned serum Orthokine having an antiinflammatory effect, of reducing pain and cartilage protector is obtained. The serum helps Orthokine slowing continuous process of destruction of the cartilage in our joints and spine. The messenger proteins, such as IL-1, report that the cells there is an injury or an infection that can become chronic, as in the case of osteoarthritis and chronic back pain. Regarding ozone, the ozone is injected into medicinal herniated disc, acting on the nerve root and the nucleus pulposus, about causing a dehydrating action, reducing its volume.
Furthermore, ozone produced in the ganglion nerve root and a series of biochemical reactions immediately. These neutralize excessive formation of acid radicals involved in the production of inflammation and pain. This technique is applied under local anesthesia, controlled by the anesthesiologist-controlled sedation and RX. It is advised in patients of any age who are unwilling or unable to undergo surgical risk.
Currently, experts consider this technique as the minimum future risks and advantages, to register the patient in the first 24 hours after surgery. Also it offers a 80% success rate of back pain caused by a herniated disc.
The doctor. Subirats Soler graduated, with distinction, from the Faculty of Medicine of the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona. He has made several stays in many countries around the world, such as Germany or Japan. A pioneer in the implementation of the ozone therapy and Orthokine technique in Spain.
