Endoscopic spine surgery is the safe and effective alternative to the all types of open back surgery that often invoke fear in patients. Many patients delay and even refuse an invasive procedure for fear of lengthy recovery times, potential problems with infection, anaesthesia and post operative complications.
One major advantage of endoscopic spine surgery is unlike the conventional spine surgeries, Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery is performed under local anaesthesia 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 hospitalisation 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 as spine is a structure which degenerates with age.
