Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery
invasive spine techniques are becoming more widespread with the advancement of
technology than ever before, enabling neurosurgeons to treat a broader range of
spinal disorders, such as
degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, fractures, tumors, infections,
instability, and deformity.
With the latest advancements in minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries,
patients experience less disruption to the surrounding muscles potentially resulting
in faster recovery compared to the standard open surgical procedures. Potential
benefits may include: smaller incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stay and
quicker return to work and activities.
