In a notable breakthrough, the Department of Neurosurgery, PGIMER has started Stitchless Endoscopic Spine Surgery under Local Anesthesia. As per the experts, the endoscopic surgery, without stitches or scar, is one of the latest advances in Minimally Invasive and Endoscopic Spine Surgery, guided by a needle under X-ray, followed by pure endoscopic visualization.
Moreover, the post-operative recovery is faster and the cost of the procedure is also far less compared to other surgical procedures for spine. As the normal parts of spine are not disturbed, the long term adverse effects are also avoided.”This procedure would be of great benefit to patients with back problems. As the whole surgery is done under local anesthesia, the risks associated with general anesthesia are avoided”, said a senior neurosurgeon at PGI
