Endoscopic Discectomy

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians provides endoscopic discectomy for patients who have acute and chronic back pain from debilitating conditions or injury. Endoscopic discectomy is a non-invasive outpatient surgical procedure used to remove herniated disc material. Our doctors understand that back surgery is not needed for everyone. In fact, if it can be avoided, it is generally beneficial to do so. Extensive back surgery requires a lot of down time for recovery, but endoscopic discectomy allows patients to recover in a minimal amount of time while seeing great improvement.

The risks associated with open back surgery are drastically reduced or completely eliminated with an endoscopic discectomy. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers this minimally invasive treatment for patients suffering from the pain associated with a herniated disc. Our double board certified physicians are experienced in helping people find relief from their back pain. With endoscopic discectomy there is long-term success for patients.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will use an endoscope inserted through a small incision in the back to guide the procedure. Patients will return home the same day they undergo the procedure with a small bandage over the incision.

If you would like more information regarding Endoscopic Discectomy and to find out if you are a good candidate for this minimally invasive procedure, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today. We look forward to meeting you and helping you stay active and live well.
