HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER AFTER AN ENDOSCOPIC SPINAL SURGERY? : Explained by brain tumor surgeon Dr.Kalyan Bommakanti, M.C

Endoscopic spine surgery is a great success nowadays because of its minimally invasive technique. As the incision is relatively very small compared to the traditional open surgery, the muscles and the soft tissues are intact. They do not require healing, so the recovery time is reduced significantly.

PAIN MANAGEMENT             

Pain control is the key element to recovery, and it is essential to manage the pain and discomfort following the surgery. This part is done to make sure that the rest of the program can be started, which includes strengthening the muscles and returning to the normal routine. This phase is quite easy to manage after endoscopic spine surgery compared to open surgery as muscle damage is very very minimal and skin incision is very small. Usually patients are either pain free or have very minimal pain at incision site. For this pain very low dose of analgesic like paracetemol or voveran or any other NSAID is given for a very short period.In the initial few days ww need to be extra careful regarding posture and movements.


It takes about an hour to two for the procedure, and you can go home the same day or in 1-2 days. The recovery time varies among individuals. But on an average, after endoscopic spine surgery patient can carry on his activities of daily life after a day. He is advised not to bend or squat or lift heavy weights for 3 weeks. All other activities are usually allowed. Your pbysiotherapist will be able to advise you better. After three weeks the restrictions are further eased and patient can lift light weights. At this time he can still experience some mild paraesthesias like tingling. The tear in annulus which was repaired during surgery will require 3 months to gain 90% strength as per my experience. The recovery phase progresses to the long-term lifestyle modifications that include a healthy lifestyle, nutritional diet, regular walking, comfortable sleeping position, exercise, drinking plenty of water plays a significant role in long term results and avoiding re-injury. A healthy diet plan reduces inflammation and speeds up the healing process.

The time of the recovery phase depends upon the condition of the patients and the procedure that is done. After an open surgery the recovery phase is much prolonged dye to more collateral damage to muscle, bone and skin. The recovery is also dependant on the willingness of the patient to actively participate in all the activities leading to a quicker recovery.


The surgeon prescribes you to seek physical therapy to preserve the benefits of the surgery. The physical trainer designs a customized plan according to the type of surgery and the patient’s needs that includes stretches, strengthening exercises to increase stamina and mobility. The physical therapy sessions allow you to avoid any chances of re-injury and strengthen the back, abdomen, and legs muscles.
