Minimally Invasive proecdure utilized to correct disc herniations
WHAT IS ENDOSCOPIC DISCECTOMY?
Endoscopic discectomy is a minimally invasive, commonly performed, surgical procedure used to remove herniated disc substance that causes pain in the neck, mid back, lower back, and legs. This 30-minute procedure is guided through the use of a small camera inserted through a surgical port to avoid large incisions and spine trauma. The surgical recovery time usually takes no more than a few hours after the procedure before the patient is sent home.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
[Since my bulging disc correction] I haven't had pain in my leg at all and had only a little pain in my back from my surgery, but zero pain in my legs, the sciatica is gone.
Edward, age 55, bulging disc injury
Today my back and hip feel tremendous. My legs are still a bit weak, possibly from nerve damage that occurred prior to surgery. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times per week. I was back at work on November 15th, 3 weeks after surgery.
Robert, age 58,
history of disc herniation and previous surgeries
Nobody likes to be injured and neck surgery is a delicate procedure, but Dr. Massoud explained what needed to be done, which made me feel more comfortable. [Post-surgery] I felt great, and today the pain is completely gone.
