A syringe of 1mL is provided so that any of these injection volumes is possible. A needle is inside the kit to withdraw DISCOGEL® from its vial.

Diagnostic and MicroTherapeutic Procedure for Disc Herniation
To assure optimal treatment results, diagnostic work-up, indication for treatment and actual therapy are carried out in an interdisciplinary fashion by a team of Radiologist, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Neurologists and Anaesthetists who do the following: 1.Medical history-taking and re-view of medical records from other institutions (patients should bring all already existing medical records with them). 2.Special MRI-diagnostics, which also requires an axial load Neurological diagnostic work-up, if necessary, a Diagnostic micro-therapy with local anesthesia of the irritated nerve root for precise identification of the source of the complaints. 3.A Treatment with Discogel in combination with a series of Ozone therapy. Follow-up MRI is done postop after the procedure.
The treatment with Discogel takes between 20 to 40 minutes and is carried out under local anesthesia. Additional general relaxation of the patient during the treatment is effected by medication that causes mild sedation and analgesia (pain relief).
After treatment a two hour period under medical observation in one of the private patient lounges is recommended. A longer stay as an in-patient is not necessary. You will then return to the hotel to relax.
