Endoscopic Spine Surgery

endoscopic spine surgery with Dr. Kris Radclif

What is endoscopic spine surgery?

Endoscopic spine surgery has been called the least invasive of the minimally invasive surgical procedures, designed to give patients an even quicker recovery time and less pain. Dr. Radcliff is an expert in this advanced procedure, which uses specialized tools.


During endoscopic spine surgery, Dr. Radcliff will make a small skin incision of less than a half-inch through which he inserts an endoscope – a small tube about the size of a #2 pencil. The houses a light source, irrigation channel, a working channel for micro instrumentation, and a high-definition camera. The camera is connected to a monitor that Dr. Radcliff uses to view the spine.


Because endoscopic surgery is so minimally invasive, there is little to no damage to skin, muscles, ligaments, and bone so there is less post-op pain and patients also tend to heal faster.

Small incisions and hyper-targeting of the surgical site mean even less trauma to the skin, muscle, and soft tissues, which results in less blood loss and a faster recovery. Most endoscopic procedures can be completed in about an hour, and patients can be on their feed just a few hours following post-op recovery.
