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.

The Benefits of Endoscopic Surgery
There are many benefits over traditional open surgery. In addition to this surgery being less invasive, it 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, Alliance Orthopedics tries other conservative treatment options first before resorting to surgery. If you live with chronic pain and other conservative treatments have not provided relief, surgery may be right for you.
