We use the minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) technique called Endoscopic Discectomy. Benefits of using endoscopic instruments and techniques include:

  • Smaller incision
  • Less damage to adjacent muscles and soft tissues
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scar tissue
  • Less pain, therefore less need for medication
  • Shorter hospital stay, most cases can be done outpatient
  • Faster recovery
  • Less costs to you and your insurance carrier


Is a tool that utilizes a focused light source and is useful in coagulation and cutting. It is very similar to bipolar cautery but it has the additional advantage of being able to cut and debride hard tissue, such as bone, when necessary. The use of the laser is an adjunct to performance of the endoscopic procedure and the decision to use this option must be discussed with the surgeon.
