In Pakistan, Dr. Khalid Mahmood often recommends minimal invasive technique for disc surgery eg endoscopic discectomy or microdiscectomy.
Endoscopic discectomy is the least invasive and effective surgical technique for treating spinal disc herniation patients. With endoscopic spine surgery, surgeons do not need to remove bones and muscles in order to remove herniated discs. Surgeons can see the spine with a camera, smaller than a smart phone camera, through a small surgical port (tube). Large incisions are avoided. The procedure does not traumatize your spine like traditional spine surgeries do. The whole procedure for a disc herniation takes about 30 minutes. The patient goes home in 2- 3 hours when the surgery is done in a surgery center.
