Endoscopic Spine Surgery

‘Endoscopic Spinal Surgery’ is a revolutionary technique in which the routine spinal surgeries are performed using a ‘key-hole’. The procedures that can be performed with this cutting-edge technology are discectomies (for slipped disc), decompression (for lumbar canal stenosis) and spinal fusion (for spinal instability).

frequently asked questions

Back pain is one of the most common ailments; approximately 80% of the adult population will develop a significant episode of back/neck pain sometime during their life. Fortunately, most of these will spontaneously resolve. However, approximately 10% to 20% will develop into significant chronic and/or recurrent episodes of pain. Wear and tear conditions, such as degenerative arthritis and degenerative disc disease, are some of the most common causes. Poor posture and weak muscles may prevent healing. Muscle pulls and tears may also cause back/neck pain, but usually, the symptoms from muscular causes are short-lived. Weak muscles, poor flexibility, and poor posture all aggravate underlying conditions and worsen symptoms. Uncommon causes of pain include infection, cancer, fractures, aneurysms, and/or internal organ problems.
A disc is the shock absorber between adjacent vertebrae. When it deteriorates it may "bulge", "slip", "rupture" or "herniate" and press on the spinal cord or nerve roots. Herniation means that a piece of disc is somewhere it does not belong.
If pain is progressive, severe, and disabling, surgery is strongly considered. Numbness, tingling, and weakness are all possible signs of nerve compression and may indicate a need for surgery before nerve damage becomes permanent. Pressure on the spinal cord can be very dangerous and may require surgery. Surgery may be preventative if the spinal cord is at risk of being damaged. Surgery may also be needed if there is significant deformity of the spine.
The decision to return to work should be individualized to the patient, as well as the patient’s occupation. For patients with sedentary jobs, such as office work, a minimally invasive discectomy would allow that patient to begin part-time work within 1-2 weeks. For a larger surgery such as a fusion, this may take 4-6 weeks. Again, return to work is much faster using minimally invasive surgery vs. standard open surgery but this decision is individualized to special needs of each patient.
