Endoscopic spine surgery is the safe and effective alternative to the types of open back surgery that often invoke fear in patients. Many delay and even refuse an invasive procedure for fear of lengthy recovery times, potential problems with infection, anesthesia and scarring. When counseling your patients with back pain make sure that they are not under the illusion that all back surgeries are the same; many will be surprised at how quickly they could be pain-free without the need for extensive surgery.
One major advantage of endoscopic spine surgery is unlike the conventional spine surgeries, Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery is performed under local anesthesia with the patient completely conscious and awake and aware during the entire procedure communicating with the operating surgeon. This ensures safety during the procedure and neurological injuries are very rare.
Transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery avoids long hospitalization something that worries many patients, particularly those with young families, demanding lives and jobs. A shorter recovery period after a procedure reduces the costs associated with surgery as patients avoid excessive hospital bills. The shorter recovery period also means that patients are better able to engage in physical activity to restore and maintain general health. Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery does not burn the bridges for further spinal procedures if they are needed in future.
