Has anyone experienced the TruFuse process?

I have severe spinal compression and hernias in the lumbar section of my back with bad sciatica. While surgery appears to be the only option my pain specialist is considering a new process using TruFuse. Has anyone had experience with TruFuse and what were the results?



  • Jerry,
    There is another treatment, I've had done a few times. I don't recall the exact term but its a "cold" laser. It works well with muscle stimulation. It doesn't hurt,it feels kind of cold but its only 5minutes or so and it works ok. This may sound wierd :/ but apparently vets have been using this on race horses for awhile.
  • Jerry,

    You may want to have your pain doc inquire about a new product called VerteLoc. It is a minimally invasive spine stabilization system. I think the company is our of North Carolina. You should be able to search for it on Google.
  • I never heard of that but I'll read on it. It would be good to have more options before major surgery. :) jade
