By Admin | October 10, 2019
Raymond Gardocki, MD, joined Memphis, Tenn.-based Campbell Clinic Orthopedics after completing a spine surgery fellowship at the Los Angeles Spine Surgery Institute in 2004.
Dr. Gardocki specializes in minimally invasive and endoscopic spine surgery and adapted endoscopy into his practice after performing his first procedure in 2017. In February, he completed his 100th endoscopic spine surgery using Joimax technology.
Although there are some challenges to overcome in the training, Dr. Gardocki maintains that endoscopy is the least invasive, safest approach to spine surgery, which allows for a decrease in morbidity rates and recovery times.
Here, Dr. Gardocki shares his insight on endoscopic spine surgery and the benefits of awake surgery.
