Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat various spinal conditions. It involves the use of an endoscope, a thin, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light source, to visualize and access the spine through small incisions in the skin.

During endoscopic spine surgery, the surgeon makes tiny incisions near the affected area of the spine. The endoscope is then inserted through one of these incisions, providing a clear view of the spinal structures on a monitor. Specialized instruments are passed through additional small incisions to perform the necessary surgical procedures, such as removing herniated disc material, decompressing nerve roots, or stabilizing the spine.

Minimally Invasive


Smaller incisions compared to traditional open surgeries, resulting in less damage to surrounding muscles and tissues. This often leads to reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times.

Precise Visualization:


The high-definition camera on the endoscope provides magnified, detailed images of the spine, allowing the surgeon to precisely navigate and perform the necessary procedures with accuracy.

Targeted Treatment


Endoscopic spine surgery enables us to target specific areas of the spine while sparing healthy tissue, minimizing the risk of complications and maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment.

Reduced Blood Loss


Because there are no long incisions in MISS, surgeons often do not have to cut through muscles to complete the procedure, leading to less tissue damage and quicker recovery.

Customized Approach


Can be tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient, with procedures ranging from simple discectomies to more complex spinal fusions, depending on the underlying spinal condition.

Improved Function


Surgeons often do not have to cut through muscles to complete the procedure, leading to less tissue damage, minimal pain and a quicker recovery.
