Micro endoscopic Discectomy or surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed through a tubular device. This is an outpatient surgery for relieving pain caused by herniated discs pressing on nerve roots and other neuro spine problems.
The following are the steps of Micro Endoscopic Surgery:
Step 1: First, through a small incision a guide wire is inserted and pushed to the affected area. Using an X-ray machine called a fluoroscope the surgeon ensures the route to the herniated disc.
Step2: The guide wire is removed after inserting a series of dilating tubes which is passed over the guide wire to push down to the vertebrae.
Step3: A tubular reactor which is used to perform the surgery, is then slid over the dilating tubes. Once it is positioned over the bone surface, all the dilating tubes are removed.
Step 4: Then a surgical light and a small camera is used to see through the tube. By using surgical instruments the soft tissues and bone will be cleared to access the spinal canal.
Step 5: The surgeon then moves away the nerve from the herniated disc.
Step 6: The area is then cleared by removing the herniated disc and allows room for the nerve to move back to its normal position.
Step 7: Finally, the tubular reactor is removed and allows the body tissues to close around the surgery area and the surface is closed with a small bandage.
