Microscopic Discectomy Stop Back Pain By Microscopic Surgery
Back pain can be uncomfortable and debilitating. Most acute back pain gets better with a few weeks of home treatment. However, for many the pain does not go away for a long period and becomes chronic. This might be a result from herniated disc or spinal stenosis. Patients suffering from these conditions may be candidates for microscopic surgery.
Microscopic discectomy/foraminotomy is done by using microscope with 20-100x magnification. The surgeon is able to see the nerves and surgical field clearly. Stealth Navigation System provides the surgeon with the ability to accurately navigate patients’ anatomy during the procedure. The system is designed to integrate with intraoperative imaging systems (IOM). This reduces the risk of nerve damage while provides high-quality imaging for surgical decisions. The incision is around 2 centimeters and blood loss is minimal. In addition, surgical time and recovery time is shorter.
Accurate diagnosis by a specialist is the most important. Treatment usually starts with the conservative method such as medicine and physiotherapy. If the pain does not go away for a long period of time and become chronic, the patient might need a microscopic surgery in order to relieve pressure on the nerve. Bangkok Spine Academy provides holistic care with an international standard from JCI (Joint Commission International), aiming to reduce unnecessary surgery in order to achieve maximum benefits for patients. Our goal is to help you get back to doing the things you enjoy by providing you the best treatment available.
