What is Endoscopic Spine Surgery?

Endoscopic Spine Surgery is an advanced surgical procedure that uses a small tubular system or micro-incisions, assisted with an endoscope or microscope to get quick recovery, less pain, minimal soft tissue damage and small incisions.  

What are types of Endoscopic Surgery?

  1. Endoscopic Discectomy-  By this procedure, the surgeon used to treat back pain of lumbar disc tear, bulging disc, herniated disc, radiculitis or radiculopathy.
  2. Endoscopic Foraminotomy- By this procedure, the surgeon used to treat bone spurs, protruded discs, scars, ligament overgrowth and lumbar facet joint disease.
  3. Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy- By this procedure, the surgeon used to treat for the neck pain treatment of cervical disc tear, herniated disc, bulging disc or brachial neuritis.
  4. Extreme Lateral Interbody Fusion-  By this procedure, the surgeon used to treat degenerative disc disease.
  5. Laser Facet Rhizotomy- By this procedure the surgeon used to treat chronic back pain from bone spurs, neck syndrome, facet joint disease and failed back.

 

Endoscopic Spine Surgery signs include:

  • Sudden & severe back pain
  • Numbness or tingling in a hand, arm, foot or leg
  • Problems with walking and balance
  • Some pain relief when lying down
  • Difficulty and pain when bending or twisting
  • Deformity of the spine
  • Patients with lumbar spinal disc herniations
  • Slip disc (Lumbar & Cervical Disc Herniation)
  • cervical spine (Neck) or lumbar spine (Lower Back)
  • Bending to the floor to pick something up
  • Slipping on a rug or making a misstep

 

Endoscopic Spine Surgery risk factor includes:-

  • Risks of anaesthesia 
  • Numbness
  • Leaking spinal fluid
  • Damage to nerves or muscles
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Temporary dizziness
  • Nerve paralysis
  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

 

To identify the diagnosis doctor advised to go for complete evolution - usually, blood investigation, (CT) scans, X-ray or magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging. Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Endoscopic Spine Surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Endoscopic Spine Surgery takes 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the procedures by giving local or general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision: Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive spine procedure and neurosurgeon makes Incision is less than 5 mm and the muscle are split with dull dilators. After the Incision, surgeons place small tubes into the diseased area of the spine using modern techniques with the help of fluoroscopic guidance (x-rays). It gives the surgeon the best views of your spine to get best results.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The neurosurgeon flaps the skin after the surgery with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips that close the skin incisions.

The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications and managing. Stitches or staples will be removed after 7 to 10 days of surgery.  Patients can move after 24 hours of the operation and after 3 days able to walk by a walker. The surgeon will advise wearing a canvas type lumbar support belt for the first few weeks.

The success rate depends on the patient, surgeon experience. It’s a safe procedure with high success rates usually more than 95%, low risk, very small incision and fast recovery. 

 

 

  • Are you board-certified neurosurgeon?
  • How many years’ experience of you has in this field?
  • How many surgeries are you doing every day?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform these types of surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this Endoscopic Spine Surgery?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and Why?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of surgery?
  • How should I prepare for this surgery?
  • How long I have to stay in the hospital and outside the hospital?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from Endoscopic Spine Surgery?
  • What type of results can I expect?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
