Endoscopic Spine Surgery

What is Endoscopic Spine Surgery?

Endoscopic Spine Surgery is a new trending, minimally invasive, alternative to larger scale back surgeries.

The surgeon makes a small incision, usually around 7mm, and inserts an endoscope to navigate to the region being operated on. An endoscope is a camera device allowing the doctor to visually see inside the surgical site without having to cause major tissue damage to reveal the area.

If endoscopic surgery is an option, it is always recommended over other surgeries that will cause major tissue damage, increasing your pain and recovery time exponentially.
