In patients with neck, back and lumbar hernia and complaints of pain, numbness and weakness due to hernia, medical treatment, analgesic treatment, physical therapy and surgical treatments, as well as the development of technology, nucleoplasty method is also used. Nucleoplasty treatment is applied to the herniated cartilage between the bones of the spine. After entering through the skin and reaching the cartilage, radiofrequency is applied to the nucleus pulposus in the middle of the cartilage with 40-70 ° C heat. With the heat, some of the damaged nucleus pulposus is vaporized and absorbed.

As a result, pain relief is aimed. The advantage of this procedure over surgical treatment is that it is performed under local anesthesia. However, not all patients may be suitable for nucleoplasty. Therefore, the treatment is decided by the physician after a detailed examination of the patients and careful examination of radiological examinations, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
