Endoscopic Discectomy

October 20, 2015 | Featured | Home Featured | Solutions

Instead of going to an orthopedic surgeon in the Atlanta area for a micro discectomy, Dr. Skaliy is excited to offer patients a minimally invasive alternative called an Endoscopic Discectomy. An Endoscopic Discectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove herniated disc material that is causing chronic pain in the back. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and the patient goes home in 2-3 hours.

Dr. Skaliy is the only doctor in the state of Georgia performing the Endoscopic Discectomy procedure.

In addition to a speedier recovery, there are many additional benefits to this procedure:

  • No incision
  • No spinal instability from the laminotomy
  • Same day surgery
  • Mild sedation only
  • Easily repeatable
  • Non destructive
  • Surgeon simply slips small scope in the side using the hole that’s already there
