Micro Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Endoscopy has conquered almost all kinds of surgery and various kinds of treatments are done using an endoscope. An endoscope is a very tiny fiber-optic video camera that is attached to a rigid endoscope which then is inserted along spine surface through small incisions. This camera is connected to a wide screen outside that facilitates wider and better view of internal anatomy. This greatly helps the surgeon to precisely reach and perform the surgery at target site.
