Now Offered at HRMC:
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Did you know that there is an alternative to traditional, open spine surgery? For some patients who have back or leg pain, sciatica, or those who know they have a herniated disc or spinal stenosis, laser spine surgery-also referred to as endoscopic spine surgery-may be the answer.
Traditional spine surgery requires the removal of sections of the back of the spine to allow the surgeon to reach the spinal sac, nerves and discs. Laser spine surgery was developed to minimize risks by being less invasive.
