Endoscopic Spine Surgery in Dubai at Emirates Hospitals Group. Chronic back pain is a frequent problem in Dubai and can significantly impact your quality of life. At Emirates Hospitals Group, our spine surgeons in Dubai offer innovative minimally invasive procedures, including endoscopic spine surgery, to help you regain mobility and control.

What is Endoscopic Spine Surgery?

Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive approach to treat various spinal conditions. Unlike traditional open spine surgery that requires larger incisions and muscle dissection, endoscopy utilizes a thin, lighted tube called an endoscope. This endoscope is inserted through a small incision, allowing surgeons to visualize the surgical field on a high-definition monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through additional small incisions to perform the necessary procedures.

Benefits of Endoscopic Spine Surgery

  • Minimally Invasive: Smaller incisions translate to less muscle disruption.
  • Less Blood Loss
  • Less Post-Surgical Pain.
  • Quicker Recovery: Shorter hospital stays and faster return to daily activities compared to traditional surgery.
  • Reduced Risk of Complications: Minimally invasive approach lowers the risk of infection, bleeding, and nerve damage.
  • Improved Cosmetic Outcome: Smaller incisions result in less noticeable scarring.
  • Preservation of Spinal Anatomy: Endoscopy allows for targeted access to the affected area, minimizing disruption to healthy tissues.

Types of Endoscopic Spine Surgery in Dubai at Emirates:

  • Endoscopic Discectomy: Removes herniated disc fragments compressing nerves. This can be performed through either a transforaminal approach (accessing the disc through the foramen) or an interlaminar approach (accessing the disc between vertebrae).
  • Endoscopic Foraminotomy: Enlarges the foramen to relieve pressure on pinched nerves.
  • Endoscopic Facet Joint Injections: Injects medications into the facet joints to manage pain associated with inflammation or arthritis.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery – Recovery Expectations

While recovery after endoscopic spine surgery is generally faster than open surgery, it’s crucial phase in your treatment journey and your exact recovery protocol will be customized to you.

  • Hospital Stay: Depending on the procedure, you may be discharged on the same day or stay overnight for observation.
  • Pain Management: You will receive pain medication and instructions on managing post-surgical discomfort.
  • Physical Therapy: Rehabilitation plays a crucial role in strengthening core muscles and improving flexibility to prevent future problems.
  • Return to Work: The timeline for returning to work varies depending on your job and the type of surgery performed. Your doctor will provide specific recommendations.

Who is a Candidate for Endoscopic Spine Surgery?

Not everyone is a candidate for endoscopic spine surgery. Ideal candidates typically have:

  • Specific spinal conditions like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or facet joint pain.
  • Good overall health.
  • No prior surgeries in the same location.

Our experienced board-certified spine surgeons will discuss your medical history, symptoms, and diagnostic imaging to determine if you are a suitable candidate for endoscopic spine surgery.
