Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery With NorthStarDoc’s Endolaser
Because the spine is such an intricate and critical component for a healthy body, spine surgery requires the utmost accuracy if it is to effectively relieve pain and improve your quality of life. NorthStarDoc’s Endolaser helps physicians perform accurate surgery and yields a smoother recovery for patients.
What Is Endolaser And How Does It Work?
Endolaser is essentially an endoscope with a laser attached to it. A small incision is made in the spine and an endoscope–which is a tiny camera attached to a hose that is pushed into the area of concern–will project an image onto a monitor so that your surgeon can gain a better view of the area they will treat. While viewing the image, your neurosurgeon will use the laser to decompress the nerves and remove affected tissues, resulting in fairly quick pain relief.
Is Endolaser Right For You?
By utilizing Endolaser, your muscles and nerves won’t be disrupted nearly as much as they would be with more typical methods. How does this make a difference? In addition to effectively relieving and reducing pain, the Endolaser ensures you don’t require sutures and will experience a far smoother recovery with little to no discomfort after the procedure.
If you suffer from severe chronic pain, there are different kinds of procedures and treatments available to you that may help improve your condition. That said, Endolaser is suitable for select conditions–particularly those that are caused by damage to the nerves, such as:
- Bulging discs/herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
