Nucleoplasty uses Coblation technology and you can use it for herniated discs for removal of the extra tissue. Coblation (controlled ablation)-based surgical devices operate at much lower temperatures and are much more precise than traditional surgical methods. Instead of exploding tissue structures under high temperatures, Coblation technology gently dissolves target tissue, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Take care and anyone who has gone through this procedure in this forum might share their views with you!
