    endoscopic surgery &/or endoscopic discectomy

    Has anyone ever heard of or done endoscopic surgery/discectomy to treat a herniated disk in the neck? If so, what were your results? It's intriguing as a potential alterative first step to alleviate my pain before I consider whole disk removal/replacement.

    thanks.

    Yes, I did. Read my account in the thread, "My Journey to Cervical Spine Surgery", {REMOVED} While the procedure I got I do not believe is technically considered endoscopic surgery, but rather microscopic surgery, the effect is the same. The disc is preserved. Everyone needs to make their own decisions, but in my opinion, Microspine is not in the same league as Dr. Jho.
