What is Endoscopic Spine Surgery?
Endoscopic spine surgery is an ultra minimally invasive surgical technique that utilizes an endoscopic camera and precisional surgical instruments to access the spine. This allows the surgeon to have an enhanced visualization and better access to the disc and nerves without damaging adjacent tissues. Endoscopic spine surgery can successfully provide relief from chronic low back and leg pain.
Also, Endoscopic spine surgery should not be confused with other traditional procedures such as minimally invasive, micro-invasive, and/or laser spine surgeries. Here we have discussed the various conditions that can be treated with this surgery, as explained by Dr. Akhil Tawari, the best Endoscopic spine surgeon in Mumbai.

Recurrent disc herniations
A herniated disc is the condition in which the fragile center of a spinal disc protrudes through a crack in the tougher exterior casing. It mostly occurs in the neck and the low back, though it can occur anywhere along the spine.
Degenerative spine diseases
Degenerative spine diseases refer to the age-related breakdown of one or more spinal discs that lead to pain. Degenerative disc disease can cause a lot of symptoms, ranging from simple pain to nerve pain or weakness if a degenerated disc prolapses and compresses the spinal cord or nerves.
Spinal canal stenosis
Spinal canal stenosis involves narrowing of the space between vertebrae. This medical condition can cause pain and reduced movement in the lower back or the neck. It develops gradually over time, usually caused by wear and tear or degenerative changes.
Spinal tumors are abnormally growing cells on or around the spinal cord. They can be caused due to various factors such as gene mutations, environmental factors, metastatic cancer, radiation therapy, or exposure to a radioactive atmosphere.
