Endoscopic Discectomy

A very small incision is used to allow surgeons access to the affected area. The disc material is removed safely through a painless laser procedure or a very small grasper/biter. The technique is simple and bloodless under our expert hands. Only a very light sedation or anesthesia is utilized in conjunction with lidocaine and marcaine as local anesthetics. Patients are comfortable throughout the procedure and are able to go home the same day. They can generally return to normal activity in a few weeks.
