What is a Spinal Camera Keyhole Epiduroscopy?

Spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy (also known as endoscopic epiduroscopy) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to diagnose and treat problems in the spinal column. It involves inserting a small camera (called an endoscope) into the epidural space, which is the space around the spinal cord.

The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia and mild sedation, and it takes about an hour to complete. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision in the patient’s back and insert the endoscope through a hollow tube. The endoscope has a light and a camera on the end, which allows the surgeon to see inside the epidural space and identify any problems.

Spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including:

  1. Herniated discs: A herniated disc is a condition in which the soft, gel-like center of a spinal disc bulges out through a tear in the outer layer. Spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy can be used to remove the herniated portion of the disc and relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.
  2. Scar tissue: Scar tissue can form in the epidural space after surgery or an injury, and it can cause pain and other problems. Spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy can be used to remove the scar tissue and improve symptoms.
  3. Spinal stenosis: Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal becomes narrowed, which can cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. Spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy can be used to remove any debris or tissue that is causing the stenosis.

It’s important to discuss the risks and benefits of spinal camera keyhole epiduroscopy with a healthcare provider before deciding if this treatment is right for you.
