IDET (Introdiscal Electro Thermal Therapy)
IDET, or intradiscal electrothermal therapy, is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure designed to alleviate chronic or severe low-back pain stemming from diseased, damaged, herniated, or degenerated discs. During IDET, an electrothermal catheter, equipped with a thin heating wire, is used to deliver precise amounts of heat to the affected disc. This process helps seal cracks in the disc's outer wall, reduce herniated disc bulges, and cauterize and disable painful nerve endings affected by the deformed disc.
Degenerative disc conditions, often related to aging, can lead to cracks in the intervertebral disc wall or herniated discs, causing debilitating lower-back pain. IDET leverages heat to repair some of these effects, significantly reducing pain in many patients. Although some discomfort may occur during the procedure, it indicates that your physician has located the source of pain accurately. IDET provides relief or elimination of chronic lower-back pain and improved mobility in approximately 80% of patients.
