In the 1990s, he developed the Yeung Endoscopic Spine System, which has continued to evolve as an outpatient procedure. Now, Dr. Yeung is focusing on publishing details of his experience in more than 11,000 spine cases since he began his career in 1991.
Here, Dr. Yeung discusses the development of endoscopic spine surgery, the importance of surgical training and reimbursement shackles associated with the technique.
