IPSC India has been pioneer in Ozone Discectomy or Ozonucleolysis for Slipped disc or Prolapsed Disc. We have treated thousands of Patients not only from across India but also International patients from USA, UK, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bangladesh, Nepal and Saudi Arabia. We have the Original , closed circuit-Self calibration Ozone Machine, imported from Italy.
Ozone in PIVD/Slipped disc
In case of prolapsed inter-vertebral disc (or, slipped disc) different other mechanism acts. Inter-vertebral disc is filled with nucleus pulposus which is a jelly like material which holds water (90% of disc material is water). When ozone is injected into the disc the proteo-glycan bridges in the jelly-like material are broken down and they no longer capable of holding water. As a result disc shrinks and mummified which is equivalent to surgical discectomy and so the procedure is called ozone discectomy or ozonucleolysis. It has been published in ANESTHESIA AND PAIN journals that up to 85% of disc operation can be avoided with these non-surgical interventions. Success rate is about 88% which is comparable to surgical discectomy (50% to 90%). Complications are remarkably low and much less than surgery.
