Selective Endoscopic Disectomy™ (SED™) is a minimally invasive spine surgery technique that utilizes an orthopedic spine endoscope to treat herniated, protruded, extruded or degenerative discs that are a contributing factor to leg and back pain.
The endoscope allows the surgeon to use a “keyhole” 1/4 inch incision to access the herniated disc. Muscle and tissue are dilated rather than being cut when accessing the disc.
Less tissue destruction • Less pain • Quicker recovery times
