What is an Endoscopic Foraminotomy?
Endoscopic Foraminotomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery procedure that can be used to relieve pressure in the spine caused by compressed nerves. The procedure involves inserting a small metal tube into the Neuroforamen and then using special equipment to remove any bone spurs, scars, ligament overgrowth or part of a protruded disc that is placing pressure on the nerve. Endoscopic Foraminotomy is an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, patients can return home with a small band-aid placed over the incision.
If you would like to get more information or to find out if you are a candidate for this minimally invasive surgical procedure, please contact our Atlanta Endoscopic Foraminotomy Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today and schedule a consultation with one of our Interventional Spine doctors.
