Chronic lumbar discogenic pain (CLDP) is a difficult condition to treat, as its pathogenesis is multifactorial and only partially understood. Non-operative therapeutic regimens often fail to achieve sufficient pain relief. Surgical options vary greatly, ranging from minimally invasive treatments such as Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy to 360° fusion.

Posterolateral Selective Endoscopic Discectomy TM (SED) and radiofrequency (RF) thermal annuloplasty is a minimally invasive treatment option for CLDP. This procedure, developed by the senior author was investigated in 1997 and approved by the IRB at St, Luke’s Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona.
