Endoscopic Discectomy

Spinal disc damage due to trauma or degenerative disease is a common source of chronic back and neck pain. When a spinal disc is damaged, it can protrude, leak or bulge, causing pressure and inflammation, creating chronic pain. Repairing the damaged spinal disc can be completed with endoscopic discectomy. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that is available through Medici Medical Arts at our Marietta surgical center.

Endoscopic discectomy is performed using a tiny incision at the location of the damaged spinal disc. Unlike conventional or open spine surgery, muscles and bone do not need to be cut or removed to repair the spinal disc. A small surgical port is created, and a tube is inserted to reach the targeted disc using x-ray guidance. Through this surgical tube, a tiny digital camera and surgical tools can be used to complete the discectomy or disc repair. The procedure usually takes less than an hour, and the patient can walk out of our surgical center a few hours later with only a small bandage covering their surgical incision.

Conditions Treated with Discectomy

The most common spinal discs to need repair are in the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions. Bulging, torn or herniated discs can be repaired using specialized tools that can pass through the small surgical tubing. Our surgeons use x-ray fluoroscopy and the direct view of the endoscopic camera to perform the surgery, removing damaged disc material using laser techniques. Once completed, the incision can be closed with just a few stitches.

Endoscopic discectomy can repair damaged discs that have been the source of chronic pain without the risks of traditional surgery. There is a minimal amount of blood loss and scar tissue formed during this outpatient surgery, with a much quicker recovery.

If you have chronic back or neck pain that is caused by herniated, bulging or damaged spinal discs, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. We will create a treatment plan to give you relief. If conservative treatment options are not effective, we offer minimally-invasive endoscopic discectomy at our state-of-art surgical center in Marietta.

We can help you!

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
