What Is Spinal Endoscopy?

A spinal endoscopy, also known as a spine endoscopy or minimally invasive spine surgery, is a medical procedure that uses specialized instruments and imaging guidance to access and visualize the spinal canal, spinal discs, nerves, and surrounding structures through small incisions in the back. This minimally invasive technique is used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes to assess and treat various spinal conditions, such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and other spinal disorders. Spinal endoscopy is associated with reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery compared to open spinal surgery. It is considered an effective and less invasive approach for certain spinal disorders.


  • Lumbar spinal diseases
  • Infection,
  • Trauma,
  • Neurological dysfunction,
  • Tumors, or severe structural abnormality like scoliosis.


Injections are generally avoided in patients who have a systemic illness or skin infection over the puncture site, bleeding problems or coagulopathy, or an allergy to local anaesthetics or any of the drugs that will be administered.


Regardless of the surgical methods, the most common complications related to Spinal Endoscopy include dural tears and perioperative hematoma, transient dysesthesia, nerve root injury and recurrence.

Post Procedure

Your doctor will discuss your recovery plan, but generally lighter activity is recommended for about 2 weeks after surgery. Once your Doctor approves you for regular activity, you can return to work
