The traditional Nucleoplasty catheters, many of which are straight-type products, can only reach the nucleus pulposus and do ablation or decompression at best. However, the YESDISC using navigation can access annulus fibrosus in the back and can relieve a patient’s pain by removing the targeted area with plasma. The cervical catheter features a curved tip. Rotating a full 360 degrees, it can cover a wide range area as well.
3. Minimally invasive surgery: A 19-gauge cervical catheter and a 19-gauge lumbar catheter are available. By using the YESDISC Catheter, the procedure can be performed without incision, making crucial areas of human body structure less affected and the damage minimalized, which translates into reduced pain and shortened recovery time for a patient.
