Endoscopic spinal surgery

At The Alexandra Hospital, we offer Private Endoscopic Spinal Surgery to patients based in Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire.

Endoscopic surgery is performed using a scope, which is a rigid or flexible tube with a camera and light at the end.  This allows the surgeon to look inside your body without the need to perform “open” surgery.

Private Endoscopic Spinal Surgery can be used to treat patients who have a lumbar disc prolapse or stenosis, which is tightness around the nerves. 

It can be performed under local anaesthetic and sedation and so does not come with the complications associated with a general anaesthetic.

Therefore, surgery can now be offered to patients with pre-existing conditions in whom general anaesthesia is riskier. Patients can even watch the procedure on the large screen, should they choose.

  • Quicker recovery
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Surgery can be performed as a day case so you can go home the same day
  • Quicker return to work and leisure activities
  • Less bleeding
  • Less muscle damage
  • General Anaesthetic is not necessary

Accessing private healthcare is easy, whether you choose to pay directly or use private medical insurance.

If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.

If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
