When Is Endoscopic Discectomy Recommended?
Endoscopic discectomy is a minimally invasive surgery that may be recommended when herniated, ruptured, or degenerated discs cannot be treated with medication, physical therapy, or injections. This procedure is especially effective in treating a wide range of disc-related disorders and stabilizing segments of the spinal cord.
How Is Endoscopic Discectomy Performed?
The goal of endoscopic discectomy is to remove the herniated or bulging disc material that presses against the spinal cord or nerve root. X-rays and fiber optics are used to assist your doctor during the procedure, which requires the use of general anesthesia. A laser is used to destroy the material while protecting the surrounding tissues and structures.
What Are the Benefits of Endoscopic Discectomy?
Endoscopic discectomy reduces soft tissue and bone damage which can occur in open spine surgery. This minimally invasive procedure is quicker than traditional surgery and has a smaller incision area.
