Endoscopic decompression is a minimally invasive surgery that utilizes an endoscopic camera and precisional surgical instruments to access the spine through a very small incision (less than one inch). The procedure allows surgeons to better visualize the disc and nerves of the operational site. The endoscopic decompression in Mumbai is an adept procedure in treating nerve compression usually caused by narrowing of the spine column, bone spurs, scoliosis, spondylosis, bulging discs, herniated discs, and facet arthritis.
