Minimally Invasive Spine Procedure


Dr. Jason Williams performs the Accurascope ProcedureDr. Williams is one of the few Specialists in the world that is trained to perform a special spine procedure that is one of the most state of the art, minimally invasive procedures available today. Using a live x-ray for guidance, Dr. Williams can insert an endoscopic fiber-optic scope through a tiny incision in the skin and into a natural opening at the base of the spine. He then examines the inside of the spinal canal and the discs of the lower back, from both sides of the spinal canal, to identify any tears, ruptures, herniation, bulges, scar tissues or other abnormalities.

Once Dr. Williams identifies inflammation and diagnoses the pain source in real time, he can then use a number of instruments, including a laser, to shrink the damaged disc(s) or scar tissue, or treat the spinal stenosis, and relieve pressure on the spinal nerve(s).

This outpatient procedure is usually completed in 30 to 40 minutes, requires only a band-aid or single stitch, and the patient returns home that same day. In most cases, the patient is able to return to work the following week.
