Spinal endoscopic surgery: Spinal endoscopic surgery refers to the use of specialized video cameras and instruments which are passed through small incisions (less than 2 cm) into the chest, abdominal or joint cavities to perform surgery. The benefits of endoscopic surgery are threefold. Since the size of the incisions is smaller, the recovery from Spinal endoscopic surgery is much quicker. There is also less pain and less damage to the surrounding tissues. Endoscopic techniques have been used for several decades, but these were exclusively for diagnostic purposes. When is a Spinal endoscopic surgery procedure an option? A lumbar microdiscectomy can be an option for treating low back pain and numbness and tingling in the legs. Spinal endoscopic surgery is performed by orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons who are experts in diagnosing the causes of back and neck pain and recognizing when a patient is likely to get better with surgery. However, surgery is not always the first option, and it is usually recommended only when specific conditions are met. Spinal endoscopic surgery is usually recommended when a ruptured disc is causing back pain and pinching a spinal nerve root(s) and only after the pain has failed to improve with time, physical therapy, and

Numbness in your extremities 4. Impaired bowel and/or bladder function If you or someone in your family is experiencing these types of symptoms, then you should see an orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon, which specializes in Spine endoscopic surgery.

The Endoscopic Disc procedure requires only a very small incision and will remove only that portion of your ruptured disc which is "pinching" one or more spinal nerve roots. The recovery time for this particular Spinal endoscopic surgery is usually much less than is required for traditional lumbar surgery. Your Chances for Success Your level of healing will be determined by your age, your general health and the severity of the damage to your spinal nerve, as well as your attitude and your willingness to work at recovery. When is Spinal endoscopic surgery not an option? The severity of your symptoms (pain, weakness, lack of mobility) and your general health and physical condition will play an important part in determining when Spinal endoscopic surgery is not an option for you. In general, spinal endoscopic surgery is not an option when: 1. your back and leg pain is not caused by a ruptured disc; or 2. you do not have leg symptoms; 3. there is a medical reason which prevents you from having surgery; 4. medication which reduces swelling or relieves pain would provide you with adequate relief; 5. Physical measures would improve your condition. Benefits of Spinal endoscopic surgery:

Spinal endoscopic surgery in India: Numerous significant reasons and issues motivate foreign health seekers and patients to travel to India for procedures like Spinal endoscopic surgery. Many medical tourists from the United States seek medical treatment in India at a quarter or sometimes even a 10th of the cost at home. From Canada, it is often people who are frustrated with long waiting lists. Patients from the UK can't wait for treatment by the National Health Services but also can't afford to see a physician in private practice. Many others from destinations like South Africa and Australia avail Indian healthcare plans to enjoy vacationing and medical tourism. And more patients are coming from poorer countries such as Bangladesh and Nigeria etc where treatment may not be available. India is considered a leading country promoting medical tourism-and now it is moving into a new area of "medical outsourcing," where medical tourism corporations help overburdened medical care systems in western countries.
