Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Endoscopic Spine Surgery (ESS) is an ultra-minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to effectively alleviate chronic low back and leg pain. This state-of-the-art approach utilizes an HD camera attached to an endoscope, inserted through a ¼ inch skin incision, to precisely target and treat the source of pain in your spine.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery Explained by Dr. Rajesh Kumar Verma

Percutaneous Transforaminal Lumbar Endoscopic Discectomy (PELD) is a cutting-edge technique for removing lumbar disc herniation. It is exceptionally minimally invasive, preserving anatomical structures and minimizing post-operative discomfort. Under local anesthesia, a 6mm spinal endoscope selectively removes the offending disc without disrupting normal anatomy, allowing patients to observe their surgery on a TV monitor and communicate with the surgeon. This personalized approach enhances safety and patient comfort.

Patient Benefits of Endoscopic Spine Surgery

This ultra-minimally invasive spine surgery offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Faster recovery times, 
  • Smaller incisions leading to reduced post-operative pain, 
  • Conscious IV sedation and local anesthetic for lower risk, and 
  • A decreased risk of post-operative infections. 
  • It also serves as an alternative to spine fusion surgery in select patients.
