Unlike open surgery, endoscopic spine surgery allows access to spinal pathology through a tiny opening to preserve tissue. With an endoscopic procedure, patients are able to be treated and return to every day activities quicker than if they had an open surgery procedure. Much like knee and shoulder arthroscopy, spine endoscopy uses an endoscope to show the surgeon all the anatomy without causing collateral damage to healthy tissue. Your physician may choose to provide this unique solution for addressing a variety of spine pathologies that are addressed through a minimally invasive approach.
