Endoscopic Foraminotomy

When the nerves in the spine are compressed, they can radiate pain in the limbs. Arm and leg pain are often due to spinal nerve compression that’s caused by bulging discs, bone spurs, scar tissue or ligament pressure. When conservative treatments are ineffective at treating spinal nerve compression, surgery may be required. At Medici Medical Arts, we offer minimally-invasive endoscopic foraminotomy to give our patients relief from chronic pain.

Endoscopic foraminotomy is performed through a dime-sized incision to access the affected area of the spine. The goal is to enlarge the canal in the spine that encompasses the nerves to relieve pressure that can cause radiating pain. A surgical tube is placed through the small incision, guided by imaging to access the area requiring repair. Surgeons utilize x-ray fluoroscopy and a small camera that is inserted through the tubing to perform the needed repairs to relieve nerve pressure. Bone spurs, disc material or excess ligament growth can be removed using surgical tools through the endoscopic tubing. Once the procedure is complete, the incision is closed with just a few stitches.

Minimally-Invasive Surgery for Spinal Nerve Compression

Most endoscopic foraminotomy procedures are done in the cervical or lumbar area of the spine. Cervical spinal nerve compression can affect the arms while lumbar spine nerve compression can affect the legs. Some of the conditions causing spinal nerve compression that can be treated with endoscopic foraminotomy include:

  • Degenerative spine disease
  • Bone spurs
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Foraminal stenosis

Endoscopic foraminotomy is an effective option for relieving chronic pain caused by spinal nerve compression. If you have been living with chronic pain that is the result of spinal nerve compression and want a better quality of life, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. We offer conservative treatments for spinal disorders, as well as minimally-invasive surgery to give you pain relief.

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.
