Endoscopic Spine Surgery – Procedure & its Benefits

Spine

It is a protective scaffolding that allows the nerve tissue to safely extend from the brain to the limbs and the torso of the body. Key parts of the spine include vertebrae, discs, nerves, and the spinal cord. The intervertebral discs are found between the individual bones (vertebra) of the spinal column and act to facilitate movement of the spine and also as ‘shock absorbers’ to cushion the transmission of weight down the spinal column. The spine is connected to different parts of the musculoskeletal system. It helps us to sit, stand, walk, twist and move. Even a small spine injury, can have a major impact on our quality of life.

Spinal cord injury

Injury to the spine and spinal cord occurs when the body is exposed to forces greater than our parts can withstand. Spinal cord injury blocks communication between the brain and the body. It affects the sensory-motor and reflex messages. Sensory messages involve the feeling of hot, cold, touch, pain, pressure, and body position. Motor messages tell the muscles in your arms, hands, fingers, legs, toes, chest, and other parts of your body how and when to move. Reflex messages are involuntary, protecting your body by an instinctive reaction.

Spinal cord injury may occur due to the following reasons: -

1. Traumatic Injury- Sudden blow to the spine that fractures dislocates or crushes vertebrae. It can happen while playing outdoor games, Vehicle accidents, Falls, etc...

2. DiseasesCancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, and spinal cord inflammation

Normal Spinal cord injury can be treated with medication and physiotherapy, but when the nerve compression is severe and there is a risk of permanent nerve damage, only surgical repair is the solution.

Minimizing tissue injury, bleeding, trauma, and post-surgery pain are extremely important to optimize the recovery from surgery. Over the years, the health care industry has seen a great stride in spine surgery technology, equipmentand instrumentation and Endoscopic Spine Surgery is the foremost example of, how digital technology has made an enormous impact on the healthcare industry. Endoscopic surgery has been designed especially for faster recovery and less pain than conventional spine surgery.

You may go through much emotional stress before going or deciding to go for spine surgery. You start thinking about muscle cut, bleeding, recovery time post-surgery, length of stay in the hospital, costing, normal routine life, and many more, but time has come to flush out all these thoughts from your head as the spine surgery is done through ultra-minimally invasive technique with the help of Endoscopy, called Endoscopic Spine Surgery which helps to

Endoscopic Spine Surgery:

Endoscopic spine surgery is an ultra-minimally invasive surgery that can help you get over your disabling back and neck pain. It has brought a revolutionary change in treating back and neck disorders. It allows us to access parts of spines, which we were unable to access previously with the help of a high-resolution camera. These are tiny cameras of a pen size. We can take care of a spinal problem like herniated disc without cutting any muscle. This helps to see the nerves around the targeted area 20 times bigger than their original size. This helps us to reduce the risk of damaging any other nerves.

How is Endoscopic Spine Surgery done?

A tiny (about one inch) incision is made in the skin, the muscle is spread and a tubular trocar, about the width of a pencil, is inserted (Trocar is a sharp-pointed surgical instrument). Next, a tiny camera is inserted deep down to the targeted area of the spine through the tubular trocar. The camera captures the real-time images of the targeted spinal part, much bigger than the original size onto a monitor. The camera helps and guides the surgeons operate during the procedure without disrupting any other nerves.

Benefits of Endoscopic Spine Surgery:

Endoscopic spine surgery has huge advantages over conventional types of spine surgeries. Open surgery required a large incision, disrupting many other nerves, more bleeding, long stay in the hospital, post-surgical complications remain for several months. However, with ultra-minimally invasive endoscopy surgery, these issues are non-existent now. All the possible risks during surgery and post-surgery are reduced just because of tiny incision is required to perform the surgery. The benefits of Endoscopic Spine Surgery are mentioned below

  • * Minimal blood loss
  • * Less scarring and better cosmetic results due to tiny incision
  • * Less pain post- surgery
  • * Less risk of infection
  • * Surgeons don’t need to cut through the muscles to reach the operative site
  • * Quick recovery and length of stay are very less- Since there is no need to disrupt any other muscle during surgery and incision is very less, the healing time for the operated area is very
  • * Less medication is required to heal.

Conclusion:

Endoscopic Spine Surgery is a revolutionary technique. This ultra-minimally invasive technique, with the help of highly skilled spine specialist doctors, may provide great relief to the new generation of patients, suffering from back and neck pain or any other spinal injuries. The overall cost of endoscopic spine surgery is less compared to open surgery as the stay in the hospital post-surgery is minimum. You also do not have to spend more money on medicines to heal the incision as the procedure requires only one inch of the incision.
