: My fiance has 2 protruding discs and is in a great deal of pain - he has tried diet, exercise, PT, OT - he's considering acupuncture and just about anything else that will bring him a pain free day. I read an article where they can heat a wire and sort of cauterize the disc so it doesn't bulge out. I posted another message under IDET but I'm not sure that anyone knew what it meant since I did not get a response. The type if procedure is noted above. I'm looking for some physician familiar with the procedure that I could have him see - we'd travel anywhere. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
I am having IDET performed on April 14, 2000. My Doctor is Andrew Cappicinno (like the coffee) and has performed this relatively new procedure. His phone number, in Lockport, NY (near Niagara Falls/Buffalo) is (716)438-2973. I'll post the results after the procedure...wish me luck!
