Assist Prof. Dr Waqas Mehdi is the Best Endoscopic Spine Surgeon in Lahore, Pakistan. He specializes in using minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat conditions of the spine. Endoscopic surgery involves using a thin tube with a camera attached to it, called an endoscope, to visualize and treat the affected area without making a large incision.
Endoscopic spine surgery has several advantages over traditional open surgery, including less pain, faster recovery, and less scarring. The procedures performed by endoscopic spine surgeons may include spinal decompression, spinal fusion, and removal of spinal tumors or herniated discs.
Like neurosurgeons, endoscopic spine surgeons must complete a significant amount of education and training, including medical school, residency, and specialized fellowship training in endoscopic spine surgery. They must also be licensed to practice medicine and be board-certified in their specialty.
Patients seeking treatment from an endoscopic spine surgeon should research the surgeon’s experience, qualifications, and patient outcomes to determine if they are the right fit for their specific medical needs.
