WHY ENDOSCOPY?

  1. Less invasive than traditional spine surgery.

  2. Uses a smaller incision than laser or ultrasonic spine surgery.

  3. Might avoid the need for fusion surgery.

  4. Can treat disc herniations that are difficult to treat with traditional surgery.

  5. Allows for a quicker recovery than traditional surgery.‚Äč

 

Some patients are not good candidates for endoscopy. Determining the best treatment plan requires a detailed history of the patient's pain pattern, a careful review of imaging studies (Xrays, CTs, MRIs, etc), review of prior treatments, and a thorough physical exam.
