The conventional Spine surgery
Spine surgery is a Taboo among patients because people are really scared of the results. The results like big scares, bleeding, bed rests or sometimes complications like neural damage and paralysis. All of these results, which the patients generally see, are of the open surgeries.
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
The spine surgery has taken a huge turn since the time the endoscope has come in. With endoscopic spine surgery, we are now able to treat all those diseases that were earlier being treated by open surgery but without any making major cut or bleeding in the body. Small 4 mm camera enters the body and reaches the site of pathology. We treat it without a single stitch in the body. The other major advantage is that with the camera we see the images from inside on a big screen. The images are 20 times bigger, so the chances of nerve damage are almost zero.
Advantages of Endoscopic Spine Surgery
The patients start walking within 4 hours after surgery. Next day they are discharged and they are back to normal routine and office within 15 days which was earlier not possible with open surgeries. The diseases which we can treat with endoscopic technique are slip disc, sciatica, spinal canal stenosis, foraminal stenosis, lateral recess stenosis and even some fractures. Now we have advanced techniques to fix the spine with screws and rods with an endoscopic technique. 90% of spine surgeries are now being done by endoscopy technique. The only hurdle is lack of awareness. Most of the people are not aware of the availability of endoscopic spine technique. Hence, they are still hesitant and reluctant for the endoscopy spine surgery. Our job is to aware people of the benefits of this technique so that they can take advantage and live a happy and healthy life.
