There are two conditions that can lead to severe back pain for many people and they are Disc herniation and lateral spinal stenosis. The pain is temporary and could be easily resolved with conservative approaches, such as rest, anti-inflammatory medications, steroidal injections, and rehabilitation. For some, the pain can be excruciating and long lasting, regardless of what is done to correct the problem.

What is Endoscopic Spine Surgery?

Our back is comprised of many interlocking bones, discs, ligaments, tendons and nerves, and may be difficult to identify a single cause of back pain. In case specific cause is identified, it usually stems from an abnormality that is quite small. In case of traditional spine surgeries, sometimes healthy body tissues must be cut and large incisions are to be made to obtain the visibility needed to correct the problem. Endoscopic spine surgery could be done by using an endoscope, an device that serves as an eye inside the patient’s back, to see and correct the faulty structures while avoiding extensive tissue damage.

The Endoscope: "Smaller than your finger"

This is a little, tubular therapeutic instrument that utilizes light and water to envision a patient's spine from the back to front. The lens of the extension is molded at a point that permits the specialist to unmistakably see variations from the norm around and under the physical structures of the back. Other therapeutic instruments are embedded through the endoscope, so one and only 7.9 mm cut is required.

Advantages of Endoscopic Surgery Include:

 

  • Very little entry points
  • Reduced recuperation and recovery time
  • Less torment
  • Decreased danger of disease
  • Minimal harm to encompassing, solid tissues
  • Lower cost
Indications

Disc herniation is a condition where the shock absorbing plate situated between the vertebrae swells out from its typical position because of a tear inside the plate or disc. The lump or the bulge part can put weight on the spinal nerve roots. Side effects can shift in their severity relying upon how far the disc displaces and whether the disc stays in place. In case of Lateral spinal stenosis there may be a condition where the way of a spinal nerve at the edge of a vertebra is limited. When this happens, the smaller section can choke or aggravate the nerve.

Both conditions can lead to any of the below mentioned symptoms:
  • Localized back pain
  • Sharp, shooting pain in the leg or lower back
  • Weakness in legs
  • Feeling of numbness or tingling sensation in the leg
Endoscopic Procedures

  • Endoscopic Discectomy is generally carried out to remove the portion of a patient’s herniated disc that is actually causing the patient discomfort. The entire procedure takes around 30 minutes and patients can walk immediately after the surgery gets over.
  • Endoscopic lateral decompression another procedure which reduces the compression of spinal nerve roots located inside constricted passageways along the back sides of vertebrae. During this procedure the surgeon removes a portion of the joint and ligament which is causing pressure. it is similar to endoscopic Discectomy and the entire procedure takes approximately 45 minutes wherein the patients can walk immediately after the surgery.
  • Who is a Candidate for Endoscopic Spine Procedures?

    Right candidates for endoscopic spinal surgeries are as follows:
    • where 6 -12 weeks of conservative treatment has failed
    • profound leg weakness is noticed
    • loss of bowel and bladder control
