Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive procedure in which microscopic incisions are made and small tubes are inserted to perform spinal surgery. This type of spinal surgery is different from a traditional spinal surgery in that it doesn’t require opening you all the way up.

Endoscopic spinal surgery involves using special instruments and video cameras to give spinal surgeries access to the spine through very small incisions. Once the small incisions are made, surgeons use a series of small tubes to access the damaged or injured vertebrae. A guidewire is placed with the use of fluoroscopy to find the damaged disc and move apart the tissue to get to the problematic vertebrae. Once they have access, the expert orthopedic spinal specialists are able to relieve the pressure that herniated discs are placing on nerves or correct other spinal issues as well. Spinal surgeons at AICA Orthopedics perform the surgery through a tubular retractor. With the use of a camera inserted through one of the incisions, spinal surgeons use surgical instruments to move bone and tissue out of the way and remove a portion of a herniated disc or correct problematic vertebrae to relieve pressure and pain in the compressed nerve. After achieving the goal of endoscopic spinal surgery, the tubal retractor and instruments are removed and the incisions are closed. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, this surgery is most often performed as an outpatient surgery requiring a less than 24-hour stay.
