Interlaminar Endoscopic Discectomy

The endoscopic approach to interlaminar discectomies provides minimally invasive access to posterior herniations in the lower lumbar spine that may be difficult to reach through a transforaminal approach. Additionally, interlaminar discectomy results in less tissue and muscle disruption, faster recovery times, and a quicker return to activity than traditional open procedures.1-4 WishBone™ endoscopic instruments feature superior feel and improved ergonomics that facilitate inverted and retrograde usage with either hand.
