Ulaanbaatar, November 27, 2023 /MONTSAME. Doctors from the Spine Surgery Department of the National Trauma and Orthopedic Center of Mongolia (NTOCM) successfully performed treatment of the L4-L5 spinal motion segment to remove the intervertebral disc to relieve nerve root compression using a CONMED 4K UHD spinal endoscopy equipment and "Bbraun" surgical instruments.


Performing arthroscopy, a minimally invasive alternative to standard open surgical techniques, using the latest technology has many benefits including smaller incisions, minimal soft tissue trauma, shorter period for rehabilitation, and faster healing time.


The surgical team included Dr. L. Bat-Erdene, Head of the Department of Spine Surgery of the NTOCM, Dr. B. Battogs, and Dr. T. Dalgerkhuu, Senior Physician of the Department of General Surgery of the Second State Central Hospital.
