    Best Endoscopic Spine Surgery Doctor in Chennai

    The field of spinal treatments has witnessed a remarkable advancement with the introduction of endoscopic spine surgery. This innovative approach prioritizes minimal invasiveness and accelerated recovery. By utilizing a small endoscope, skilled surgeons can make a small incision to reach the spine, thereby reducing tissue damage and post-operative discomfort.

    The rise in life expectancy has contributed to an increase in spinal diseases. Consequently, there has been a surge in the global demand for minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) and endoscopic spine surgery (ESS), particularly among the elderly population.

    Types of Endoscopic Spine Surgeries

    Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery (TESS)

    It is an optimal choice for lumbar disc herniations as it allows surgeons to access the affected disc through the foramen, which is the space between the vertebrae.

    Interlaminar Endoscopic Spine Surgery

    It is a highly effective technique for central disc herniations or lumbar stenosis, involving accessing the spine through its protective lamina.

    Thoracic Endoscopic Spine Surgery

    It focuses on the mid-back or thoracic region, is a valuable option for conditions like herniated discs, although it is less common due to the presence of the rib cage.

    Endoscopic Cervical Spine Surgery

    It utilizes a compact endoscope to address cervical spine issues such as herniated discs and stenosis in the neck.

    Endoscopic Facet Rhizotomy

    It is a technique that uses an endoscope to cut the medial branch nerves, providing relief from facet joint pain.

    Endoscopic Foraminal Decompression

    It is a surgical procedure designed to widen the neural foramen and alleviate nerve compression caused by bone spurs or herniated discs.

    Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy

    It is a surgical intervention specifically for treating disc herniations in the lower back (lumbar region). Surgeons use an endoscope to remove portions of the herniated disc that are causing pain and other symptoms by exerting pressure on nerve roots.

    Endoscopic Microdiscectomy

    It is similar in purpose to endoscopic lumbar discectomy, focuses on the treatment of herniated discs. However, it involves specialized microsurgical techniques and instruments in addition to the endoscope.

    Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy

    Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy targets disc herniations in the neck (cervical region). Surgeons remove the herniated parts of a cervical disc that are compressing the spinal cord or nerve roots.
