Laparoscopic Spinal Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery techniques are minimally invasive procedures developed to mitigate the tissue damage, anesthesia issues, and post-operative recovery times typically associated with conventional abdominal and pelvic surgery techniques. Many of the advantages of laparoscopic surgery apply to the minimally invasive AccuraScope D.N.D. surgery developed by North American Spine.
Laparoscopic Surgery Techniques
In preparation for a laparoscopic surgery, the patient’s abdominal cavity is filled with carbon dioxide gas. The gas creates room for the surgeon to work. A series of small incisions are made, which allows the surgeon to maneuver a tiny fiber optic camera and specialized surgical tools inside the patient.
Laparoscopic surgery techniques limit the amount of blood lost in the procedure and help protect the internal organs from possible contamination. Laparoscopic surgery also involves less post-operative pain and shorter hospital stays. Laparoscopy is used in Gall Bladder, Gastrointestinal, Renal and many other procedures involving the abdominal or pelvic region.
Laparoscopic techniques belong to the broader field of Endoscopic Surgery, which is the use of internal imaging systems to assist in surgical techniques. North American Spine’s Partner Physicians have developed endoscopic surgical techniques for use in the treatment of chronic back pain. If you suffer from debilitating back pain, the Minimally Invasive, Natural Opening AccuraScope D.N.D. surgery techniques are the least invasive Minimally Invasive spine procedure. The procedure may be able to better diagnose and cure your pain, while avoiding some of the risks associated with traditional back surgery.
