State of the Art Foraminal Endoscopic Surgery

Foraminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery and its Applications Presentation for
The General Transforaminal Endoscopic Workshop (Modified Version)

A powerpoint presentation given at the General Transforaminal Endoscopic Workshop on the YESS Technique and its Philosophy.

Dr. Anthony Yeung states:

“I am trying to devote more time to teaching and supporting the technologies and companies who have technologies that I believe will or should have an impact on MIS spine care. The slides I use [in this presentation] are not to be used for CME talks where the talks are not condusive to free exchange of ideas and techniques because of its restrictions on expressing “biased” opinion. Bias also comes from surgeon experience and philosophy, and benefitting from one’s bias is not necessarily bad, if it is made transparent.”

Percutaneous Selective Endoscopic Discectomy and Thermal Annuloplasty

The history of low back pain and sciatica date back to ancient times. Domenico Cotugno first described “sciatica” in its classic terminology in 1764 and believed that pain was generated by the nerve itself. The big three V’s: Valliex, Virchow and Von Luschka introduced the possibility of structure referred pain in the 1800’s. With the advent of x-rays one hundred years ago, imaging of spinal anatomy allowed correlation of anatomic findings to conditions that explained the origin of low back pain.
