Abstract provided by Publisher
The development of microscopy, laser technology, endoscopy, and video and image guidance systems has provided the foundation on which minimally invasive spinal surgery is based. Minimally invasive treatments have been undertaken in all areas of the spinal axis since the 20th century. Lumbar disc disease has been treated using chemonucleolysis, percutaneous discectomy, laser discectomy, intradiscal thermoablation, and minimally invasive microdiscectomy techniques.
