Lower back pain and/or leg pain

Lower back pain and/or leg pain (Lumbar spondylolisthesis)
In the spinal column the vertebrae can shift. As a result, there is no longer cartilage between the vertebrae. This friction between the vertebrae causes constant lower back pain and leg pain. Other symptoms include an increase in Lower back pain and weakness in the legs during exercise. For this type of spine surgery, one of the latest back surgery techniques, endoscopy, is used. Endoscopic back surgery is a minimally invasive spine surgery for lower back pain treatment that is performed with an instrument that enables one of our top spine surgeons to monitor the procedure by means of a rigid tube or a flexible hose in the body. The great advantage to this minimally invasive endoscopic spine operation is that only a small incision is made on the patient. Both scarring and back surgery recovery time are reduced to a minimum.
