Minimally Invasive Herniated Disc Treatment

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to offer expert minimally invasive herniated disc treatment to patients nationwide. If you suffer from pain and other symptoms due to a herniated disc and non-surgical treatments have failed, you may be a good candidate for this outpatient procedure. Endoscopic discectomy offers many advantages over traditional open back surgery, including fewer chances of complications, less post-operative pain and a shorter recovery time. With endoscopic discectomy, the spine remains intact and there is little chance of scar tissue development. This has important implications for the long-term success of the procedure.

What Is an Endoscopic Discectomy?

What is an endoscopic discectomy? An endoscopic discectomy is a highly effective and minimally invasive treatment that can be used to relieve the pain caused by a herniated, protruded or extruded disc. The procedure involves inserting an endoscope into a small incision in the back under the guidance of a fluoroscope to remove a small portion of the affected disc or to push it back into place. Endoscopic discectomy is an outpatient procedure and takes an average of an hour to complete. 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 find out if you are a candidate for this minimally invasive surgical procedure, please contact the Endoscopic Discectomy Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today and schedule a consultation with one of our interventional spine physicians. For your convenience, we accept most insurance plans as well as several other forms of payment. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life!

Please note how small the incisions are compared to my index finger. Remember: a traditional, open 2 level discectomy had a 5 to 7 inch long incision.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
