Minimally invasive spine surgery has been shown to be more successful than conventional surgery when applied to appropriately selected patients.The use of endoscopy has proven to yield results equivalent or better than conventional spine surgery while providing the benefits of a minimally invasive procedure. Endoscopy enables the physician to visualize the procedure and to verify the desired end point. The pulsed Ho:YAG laser, with its extremely shallow penetration (less than 0.5 mm in water), has consistently proven to be the most effective and safest method for delivering ablative energy through a small cannula.
