ScopeSpine is a spine specialty clinic and national reference center dedicated to the advancement of minimally invasive and endoscopic spinal surgery.
This site follows the work of Dr. Usman Zahir, an endoscopic spine specialist who was the first surgeon in Virginia to introduce the latest advances in endoscopics to the state. He performed Virginia's first endoscopic laminectomy.
ScopeSpine is a division of the Orthopedic Group in Virginia and is also affiliated with Metro Orthopedics & Sports Therapy in Maryland. Dr. Zahir has created a unique partnership with these two practices allowing patients from both states access to the latest in minimally invasive spine surgery. This is a blend of spine and sports medicine, offering spine solutions both for high performing athletes and patients who are interested in less invasive surgical options to preserve motion. Our goal is an expedited recovery process.
ScopeSpine takes pride in helping many patients avoid spinal fusion surgeries. Our practice also provides non-surgical spine care. With three main office locations: Dulles, Leesburg / Lansdowne, Potomac, our specialty clinic has helped provide second opinions and treatments for patients throughout North America.
This site reviews how endoscopics differs from other spinal surgeries. There are several reported minimally invasive spinal treatments: laser, ultrasonic, robotic, and endoscopic. The procedures may sound similar, but they are different.
What is the difference between these procedures?
Do these terms refer to tools/instruments or unique approaches?
