Endoscopic Spine Surgery

The endoscopic spine surgery is the type of surgery that is done on the bone of the spine (backbone). In this surgery, smaller incisions are done in place of bigger a opening done under the conventional method of treatment. This technique uses a small tubular system or micro incisions assisted with an endoscope for visualization. It is a type of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS). This provides quicker recovery for the patients and less pain than traditional spine surgery. The normal spine mobility is preserved during endoscopic spine surgery because during this the spine is not fused with screws and rods. Dr. Lalit is specialized for such kind of spinal treatment. The surgeon makes a small incision then inserts a tubular retractor. A special operating microscope is used to view real-time X-ray images of the spine.
