Endoscopic Spinal Surgery
Endoscopic spinal surgery has been described as “the next level of minimally invasive care”. It is an ultra-minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat various spinal conditions. It involves the use of a high-definition endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera at the tip, to access and operate on the spine through small incisions (usually less than 1cm). This approach offers several advantages over traditional open spinal surgery, including smaller incisions and reduced muscle damage, which means fewer biomechanical alterations, thus shorter recovery times, and potentially less post-operative pain.
