A non-invasive spine surgery for correcting spinal conditions for chronic pain in the neck, back, arms or legs.
First we confirm your condition using an MRI review and Video Consultation. Conditions include:
Next, you will undergo a same day procedure that uses a high magnification camera inserted through a 1 cm incision.
Upon completion, the incision is covered with a small band aid and you’ll be sent home the very same day.
That’s it. You’ll leave the surgery center noticing an immediate reduction in pain and improved mobility.
The entry point for endoscopic (ie minimally invasive) spine surgery is so small it is barely noticeable once fully healed.
There is little to no blood loss during endocopic spine surgery because so little tissue is disrupted.
Taking as little as 15 minutes and in a very safe setting, the patient can go home in just a couple hours and most are up and walking that evening.
Many patients report just needing over-the-counter pain meds or no pain medications at all after the first day.
Endoscopic surgery provides an alternative to aggressive traditional surgeries. Range of motion is restored and preserved by both using this most modern method and in its resolution of the spine issue.
In addition to immediate clinical relief, long-term clinical satisfaction is also reported in about 90% of cases.
Over the years, our center has helped thousands of people free themselves from back & neck pain once and for all.
We’ve been serving the greater New Jersey & New York area for years as one of the region’s most advanced Orthopedic
Endospine Surgery is short for Endoscopic Spine Surgery, which means that spinal surgery is performed through a tiny tube (usually less than 1 cm in diameter) and a high resolution HD digital camera.
During the surgery, the surgeon can see the granular structure of the spine without cutting open the back like in a traditional surgery.
The surgery is minimally invasive with no bone or muscle removal for most cases. As opposed to a breathing tube and heavy sedation for a traditional surgery, local anesthesia with intravenous sedation in most cases is enough for Endospine Surgery.
Importantly, the patients range of spine motion is preserved with Endospine Surgery where as with traditional surgery and fusion surgery it is limited afterwards in most cases.
Recovery from Endospine Surgery is only a few days compared to months or years with traditional spine surgery.
Endospine Surgery is the future of spine surgery. Traditional spine surgery is bloody and traumatic. Spinal bone and muscle is cut out. Surgical complications, such as infection, bleeding, and nerve injury are much higher in traditional spine surgery than in Endospine Surgery. Recovery from traditional spine surgery is long, from months to a year or longer.
More than 80% of traditional spinal surgery can be replaced by Endospine Surgery nowadays. Conditions such as disc herniations, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine can all be treated with Endospine Surgery. Patients with failed traditional spine surgery can be helped with Endospine Surgery as well.
Most patients with chronic pain in neck or back, arms, or legs get better with non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications such as Advil, Aleve, Motrin, etc along with physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, or pain management with spinal epidural steroid injections. However, if their pain is persistent after comprehensive conservative treatments, they need to consider spinal surgery. We encourage all patients who are recommended for transitional spinal surgery to have a second opinion with an experienced Endospine Surgery specialist.
Yes, Endospine Surgery is covered by Medicare, most private insurances, and insurance for motor vehicle accidents and work related injuries.
