Via Disc NP Allograft

Pain Management Services

What is a Via Disc NP Allograft?

A VIA Disc is a non-surgical, injectable, processed matter that repairs degenerated intervertebral discs to relieve lower back pain. During the procedure, a pain doctor delivers the allograft through a specialized needle to deliver the nucleus pulposus allograft.

The processed human nucleus pulposus helps restore function, by regenerating and repairing the damaged disc. The nucleus pulposus (NP) particulate comes from the intervertebral discs of donor tissue. The substance supports the biomechanical function of the repaired disc to allow better movement in your spine.

If you suffer from chronic lower back pain, talk to a pain management specialist today. Dr. Ilana Etelzon, an experienced pain management specialist, treats the most painful conditions using advanced minimally invasive procedures and various regenerative therapies, including VIA Disc NP allograft.

How Does a Via Disc NP Allograft Work?

A Via Disc NP Allograft injection contains micronized disc material and allogeneic tissue to reverse damage to the degenerated discs. Your pain doctor uses the procedure to supplement the degenerated intervertebral disc through allogeneic disc tissue therapy in an outpatient setting. The pain treatment procedure works by:

  • Supplementing nucleus pulposus (NP tissue) and cells in the intervertebral disc and leveraging processed human nucleus pulposus to repair damaged spinal discs
  • Relieving pain caused by age-related degenerative intervertebral discs
  • Overcoming a loading imbalance in your lumbar region caused by degenerative tissue loss
  • Supplementing tissue loss to improve mechanical function of previously damaged cushioning discs
  • Reversing damage in intervertebral discs for long-term pain relief
  • Improving your quality of life through chronic pain relief

Dr. Ilana Etelzon has the technology and expertise to carry out the advanced VIA Disc procedure. The pain management specialist, aided by her board-certified medical professionals, uses the best equipment to deliver life-changing pain treatments at her NYC clinic.

What’s the Procedure for a Via Disc NP Allograft?

A Via Disc NP allograft is one of the most complex yet effective treatments for lower back pain caused by degenerative intervertebral discs. Only a board-certified pain doctor with experience in spinal pain management can carry out the procedure. Via Disc allograft is an outpatient procedure that won’t require admission post-treatment. The main steps in the allograft procedure include:

  • Consultations and medical review. Your doctor examines your symptoms, orders diagnostic tests and reviews the results to assess your medical history. If you have damaged spinal discs, your doctor may recommend a Via Disc NP allograft.
  • Sedation. To ease pain or discomfort, a board-certified doctor’s assistant uses moderate sedation or local anesthesia.
  • Pre-procedure. The pain doctor uses fluoroscopy to mark the injection site accurately. The procedure guides the doctor to pinpoint affected discs. Your doctor may administer intravenous antibiotics before treatment to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Via Disc NP allograft. The doctor, guided by visual x-ray, uses a special 20G spinal needle that goes through the skin, muscle, and into the center of the intervertebral disc. Before this, your doctor mixes the NP particulate with saline, then delivers the VIA Disc NP.
  • Post-treatment care. After the injection, you might experience some mild pain and soreness. Avoid excessive physical or strenuous activity for the next three days. Follow your doctor’s instructions and only take medication prescribed for pain relief. Besides pain medication, an ice pack or back brace helps manage discomfort in the treated area.
  • Follow-up. After two to four weeks, your doctor requests a follow-up to determine the effectiveness of the procedure. The procedure takes a few weeks to have an effect on your back pain.

If back pain is affecting your life, contact Dr. Ilana Etelzon in NYC and leverage the benefits of advanced pain treatments including Via Disc NP Allograft to live pain-free.

  • Dear Doctor Etelzon, Thank you again. I am starting to feel more like myself again...I couldn't say the problem is totally gone, but a big weight has been lifted...Today...I decided to go and do my nails which I did not do for a long time after the incident. I also asked my daughter if we could go to the park. These are things I normally enjoy but forgot about them for a few months now.
