Endoscopic discectomy

An endoscopic discectomy is a minimally invasive procedure to remove a part of a herniated disc in the spine.

There are little discs between the bones in the spine that cushion the bones. If the discs move out of position, they can push on the nerves in the spine and cause pain.

In this procedure tiny instruments are inserted into little incisions in the skin and the part of the disc that is sticking out is removed. The rest of the disc stays in place.
