MEND Procedure For Back Pain and Sciatica

Swift Recovery, Freedom From Back Pain: Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures for Tricare Members

Minimally Invasive Endoscopy Discectomy (MEnD) procedure

The MEND procedure effectively treats back pain and sciatica with minimal invasion. A tiny opening of 1/8 inch is created to access the affected area of the spine without harming the surrounding tissues. This approach significantly reduces discomfort after the procedure, allowing patients to return to normal lifestyles much quicker than conventional approaches.

Why Choose MEND?

  • No hardware or open back surgery with innovative MEND procedure
  • Tiny 1/8-inch incision

Minimally invasive surgery

The endoscopic procedure has revolutionized the treatment of back and neck pain. Most procedures take less than an hour, and patients can walk around in a few hours.

Preserves normal mobility

MEND procedures help protect the integrity of the spine and preserves the normal mobility because the spine is not fused with hardware such as screws and rods.

Surgery performed on location

Our minimally invasive MEND procedure can be performed within our office since it creates a very tiny opening (1/8 inch) to reduce discomfort and allows patients to recover faster.
