Unleashing the Game-Changing Potential of Endoscopic Spinal Micro Discectomy

For those suffering from persistent back pain resulting from herniated discs or spinal stenosis and feeling frustrated by unsuccessful attempts at finding relief, Dr. Nicolas Grisoni, Spine Surgeon at Orthopedic Associates (OA) brings forth an innovative solution.

Endoscopic Spinal Micro Discectomy is a revolutionary surgical technique aimed at treating back pain caused by a herniated disc or spinal stenosis. This minimally invasive procedure, performed by Dr. Grisoni, involves the use of an endoscope and specialized instruments to access the affected area of the spine. The procedure allows for precise removal of the herniated disc material, relieving pressure on the spinal nerves and reducing pain. With smaller incisions, minimal tissue disruption, and faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgeries, Endoscopic Spinal Micro Discectomy offers patients the potential for improved comfort, restored mobility, and a quicker return to their daily activities.

Recently, an OA patient facing severe, long-lasting pain in their left leg and lower back due to a problematic disc, was continuing to experience pain despite exhausting all non-operative treatment options. Determined to find a solution, Dr. Grisoni, one of 36 spine surgeons in the USA performing dual-portal endoscopic spine surgery, and the first in the state of Ohio to do so, recommended an endoscopic microdiscectomy. With surgical precision, Dr. Grisoni skillfully made two tiny incisions, each measuring no more than the diameter of a pen, to successfully remove the compressing disc that had been causing the patient’s persistent sciatica. Remarkably, the patient was able to return home on the very same day, with newfound hope for a future free from pain.

  • Reduced Risk of Complications: The minimally invasive approach of Endoscopic Spinal Micro Discectomy carries a lower risk of complications, such as infection, bleeding, and nerve damage, compared to traditional open surgeries.
  • Targeted Treatment: Precise removal of damaged disc material, effectively addresses the source of pain, while minimizing disruption to healthy surrounding tissue.
  • Limited Scarring: The smaller incisions used in Endoscopic Spinal Micro Discectomy result in minimal scarring, providing a cosmetically favorable outcome.
