The neck (cervical) and lumbar discs are at risk of injury or degeneration due to the mobility of those areas.

A nucleoplasty/ annuloplasty is the placement of a special probe via a needle into the disc or the disc cover (annulus). Therapy such as radiofrequency or laser energy is applied via these probes to

  1. Vaporise disc material hence reducing pressure caused by disc bulge

  2. Heal the torn disc covering

  3. Deactivate the irritated nerves within the disc covering
