North American Spine is best known for its exclusive AccuraScope procedure. The AccuraScope is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure used to both diagnose and treat inter-vertebral lumbar discs, spinal stenosis and many other causes of chronic back pain.
Using a live x-ray for guidance and a tiny incision, the doctor inserts an endoscopic fiber-optic scope, like a small tube, through a small incision in the skin and into a natural opening at the base of the spine.
The doctor 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, herniations, bulges, scar tissues or other abnormalities. He then identifies inflammation and diagnoses the pain source in real time.
A number of instruments are used, 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 mild spine procedure is usually completed in 30 to 40 minutes. Many patients experience immediate relief.
