Endoscopic Surgical Stabilization
The spine is susceptible to degenerative disease and osteoporosis that can impact its stability. In addition, some surgical treatments for addressing spinal nerve compression remove bone and tissue, leading to loss of spinal stability. To protect the spine from injury, surgical stabilization may be needed. At Medici Spine & Pain, we offer endoscopic surgical spine stabilization that is a less invasive procedure with a quicker recovery than traditional surgery.
Many minimally-invasive procedures help reduce compression on spinal nerves that cause chronic pain in the neck, back, arms and legs. We offer endoscopic discectomy, laminectomy and foraminotomy that can relieve spinal nerve pressure and chronic pain. In some cases, these procedures relieve pressure on the spinal nerves but may weaken or destabilize the spine. Surgical stabilization may be needed to protect the spine from injury. We offer endoscopic surgical stabilization to strengthen the spine without the invasive risks of conventional open spine surgery.
Minimally-Invasive Spine Stabilization
Conventional spine stabilization may involve open back or neck surgery to fuse vertebrae with screws or plates. The large incisions needed to access the vertebrae can cause excessive blood loss and other risks during this type of procedure. Recovery time is extensive, requiring months of limited movement. With endoscopic spine stabilization surgery, small incisions, as narrow as a dime, can be used to access the vertebrae. There is minimal scarring or blood loss and less trauma to the muscles and bones during the procedure. Recovery is much quicker, and surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis. We perform endoscopic spine stabilization at our state-of-the-art surgical center in Marietta.
