Percutaneous Endoscopic Endoscopic Microdiscectomy
Endoscopic discectomy is an advanced method in disc herniation surgery, which allows a faster recovery and reduces postoperative pain, since the injury to the muscles and neighboring tissues is minimized. It is performed through a small incision in the spine, through which a tube or endoscope is introduced, which has a camera at its end. The camera sends images to a video monitor that the surgeon follows to perform the surgical procedure. Through the endoscope are also introduced instruments specifically designed to repair the disc and remove the fragments of the same that are causing compression of the nerve roots, achieving good results with minimal surgical aggression and respecting the anatomy.
