Spinal Disc Herniation

Kevin had been experiencing back pain and numbness in his right upper leg and thigh for nearly a year. Kevin had symptoms of numbness, stabbing pain in his leg and cramping in the legs, which were caused by a spinal disc herniation. Unlike the more invasive lumbar laminectomy, the endoscopic procedure involves only one small incision in the patient’s side. 

Dr. Neil Malhotra was the first surgeon to perform a endoscopic spinal laminectomy in the state of Pennsylanvia. This procedure allows a surgeon to address the cause of the ailment while minimizing symptoms from surgery-incisional pain and muscle dissection pain. Kevin was the first patient to undergo a life-changing, minimally invasive spine surgery through a single incision in his side that had him up and walking just hours after surgery.
