Endoscopic Spine Surgery (ESS) is a minimally invasive procedure performed through a ‘keyhole’ approach.
Dr Hsu or Dr Singh make a small incision and carefully move aside surrounding soft tissue. Using modern navigation technology, Dr Hsu or Dr Singh perform the procedure with an illuminated and detailed view of all structures of the spinal canal.
ESS is used to treat a variety of spinal disorders and conditions including disc herniation, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease requiring spinal stabilisation.
The advantages of ESS include minimal risk of infection, fewer scars, less wound and muscle pain, and a shorter hospital stay.
All surgical procedures involve risks. The information provided here is for general educational purposes only. For specific advice regarding an anterior cervical discectomy & fusion, please book an appointment with one of our surgeons.
