Surgical procedures on the spine: Endoscopic treatment of lumbar vertebae conditions
The treatment is carried out in a minimally invasive manner. The biggest advantage is the fact that the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and after four hours the patient can walk again. In our clinic we use MaxMore instruments. It's essentially a treatment of choice for intervertebral disc hernia.
The treatment involves an introduction of an endoscope combined with tools such as a camera and a light source into the spine through an incision about 1cm. Precise location and enlarged image on the monitor allows us to safely remove the herniated disc using Microtools.
This is not a simple procedure and requires the right skills, but the end result - immediate relief of pain and possibility to walk after a few hours - allows for a quick return to normal life.
