Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy
Disc herniation and lateral spinal stenosis are two conditions that can lead to severe back pain for many people. Sometimes the pain is temporary and is easily resolved with conservative treatments, such as rest, anti-inflammatory medications, steroidal injections, and rehabilitation. However, for others, the pain can be excruciating and long lasting, regardless of what is done to correct the problem.
Advances in surgical techniques and medical instrument technology have brought on vast improvements in the treatment of these spinal conditions. This guide describes two new and exciting procedures available at the Bumrungrad Spine Institute. They are the least invasive spine surgeries to date to remove a portion of a herniated lumbar disc or decompress a constricted nerve root in lateral stenosis.
