Has anyone heard of the Edited to remove facility name ? I'm in the philadelphia area and they offer an endoscopic approach for my cervical disc herniation. I have a C5-C6 herniation and I''ve been to several Ortho and NS surgeons. One has suggested a fusion as the best bet. I was looking into a partial discectomy from the back b/c i dont want any plates or screws (i'm 29 years old). But i wasnt sure if doing a partial in the back is the same as the endoscopic approach from the EDITED to remove facility name . And no one else seems to offer that approach other than the institute. I'm always hesitant on the artificial disc since its relatively new.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've waited long enough and feel that surgery is my only option now but I need to choose the right approach.
thanks in advance
