What Happens During an Endoscopic Discectomy Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Jersey City, NJ?
Endoscopic Discectomy surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Jersey City, NJ is a procedure that uses a tubular system and an endoscope. First a small incision is made, typically 1 inch or smaller, at the operative site. Then a tubular retractor, typically the width of a pencil, is inserted through the incision ending at the targeted area of the spine.
Next, the endoscope, which is essentially a tiny camera, is inserted through the tube. This camera captures real-time images and displays on a screen which guides the surgeon during the procedure. Your orthopedic surgeon will be able to visualize the area and remove impeding soft tissue, such as herniated disc material.
