What is the Discseel® Procedure?
The Discseel Procedure is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure that utilizes fibrin, a natural biologic formed from fibrinogen during the blood clotting process. Fibrinogen is a protein present in blood plasma from which, using the enzyme thrombin, the body creates fibrin. Fibrin then forms a fibrous mesh that impedes blood flow and encourages new tissue to grow, healing cuts and tears. The Discseel Procedure utilizes your body’s natural healing processes and applies them to your spinal discs, which cannot heal themselves without assistance.
The Discseel Procedure is a regenerative spine procedure that is an excellent choice for athletes or anyone with an active lifestyle that would like to restore their mobility. This procedure is commonly used to heal the following conditions:
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Herniated Discs
- Chronic Lower Back Pain
- Annular Tears

What to Expect with the Discseel® Procedure
During the in-person consultation you will speak directly to Dr. Timothy Jones, who will perform the Discseel® Procedure. We want to make sure you are confident about the procedure and that we can answer all your questions prior to the procedure.
The annulogram is a detailed process that will identify your pain source. It specifically determines if your normal or abnormal-looking discs are leaking. Anything missed by an MRI will show up on the annulogram.
During the Discseel® Procedure, Dr. Jones will inject a substance called fibrin into your damaged disc, which will seal the disc. Fibrin is an FDA approved biologic that is made from human blood. The entire procedure is observed though live x-rays.
After the Discseel® Procedure most patients are walking within the first 24 hours. Immediately after the procedure, your damaged disc will begin healing, which is a process that will continue over the next 12 months.
