Endoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small incision and specialized instruments to access your areas of pain.
Your surgeon will use an endoscope to see inside the body and guide the instruments during the procedure. An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a light and a small camera attached to the end.

- Herniated discs

At NJ Spine and Wellness, our team of experts are highly trained in endoscopic surgery and will work with you to develop a suitable treatment plan for your specific needs. In addition, we offer the latest technology and procedures to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
Endoscopic surgery offers many benefits over traditional open surgery. In addition to this surgery being less invasive, endoscopic surgery also:
- Reduces blood loss
- Causes less tissue damage
- May result in a shorter hospital stay
- Has a quicker recovery time
- Has a lower risk of infection
- Comes with less scarring
Although this method is typically successful in treating a variety of conditions, NJ Spine & Wellness tries other conservative treatment options first before resorting to surgery. If you live with chronic pain and other conservative treatments have not provided relief, endoscopic surgery may be right for you.
