Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Evaluation of different laser wavelengths on ablation lesion and residual thermal injury in intervertebral discs of the lumbar spine
Laser discectomy or nucleotomy is an increasingly important method for less invasive procedures of column, but the ideal kind of laser is still not established.
Epiduroscopic Laser Neural Decompression for Removal of L2-3 Disc Herniation in a Patient with Symptoms Suggestive of L5 Nerve Root Involvement

Trans-Sacral Epiduroscopic Laser Decompression for Symptomatic Lumbar Disc Herniation: A Preliminary Case Series
Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of trans-sacral epiduroscopic laser decompression (SELD) in patients with a herniated lumbar disc. Methods:
Evaluation of Decompression and Interlaminar Stabilization Compared with Decompression and Fusion for the Treatment of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: 5-year Follow-up of a Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Trial
Introduction: If nonoperative treatment for lumbar stenosis fails, surgery may be considered. This traditionally includes decompression often combined with fusion. Desire for less extensive surgery
Comparison of open surgical discectomy versus plasma-laser nucleoplasty in patients with single lumbar disc herniation
Background: Intervertebral disc herniation is a major cause of low back pain. Several treatment methods are available for lumbar disc herniation including Chemonucleolysis, open surgery,
