Endoscopic Spine Surgery is a state-of-the-art surgery that uses micro incisions and is assisted with an endoscope for visualization.
This procedure performed to relieve pain caused by herniated discs pressing on nerve roots. Endoscopic spine procedures are usually performed in an outpatient setting or 23-hour stay.
With Spinal endoscopic surgery, there is a smaller risk of infection as compared to Open Back Surgery, minimal loss of blood as only an incision less than 1 inch is made of the muscles, and minimal pain involved during and after the procedure.

However, this procedure is not for everyone. Typically people with very severe back injuries from events such as auto accidents are not suitable for this surgery.

The estimated Spinal Endoscopic Surgery Cost in India is around USD 7,048.
