Endoscopic spine surgery – safe, tissue-sparing & efficient
The innovative endoscopic surgical methods of joimax® offer you and your patients many advantages:
- Minimal tissue trauma: muscles, ligaments and tendons need not be disrupted
- Faster recovery of the patient: Clinical studies have shown shorter hospital stays and a quicker return to work1, 2 for endoscopic disc surgery
- Sophisticated technology “made in Germany”: Optimal visualization of the surgical field in HD quality and especially adapted instrumentation developed in close cooperation with experienced surgeons
The complete systems of joimax® for endoscopic spinal surgery cover a wide range of indications: the treatment of facet joint pain is possible as well as that of almost all kinds of herniated discs or the bony decompression of a spinal stenosis.
The unique transforaminal access directly into the ventral epidural space for almost all types of disc herniations.
The interlaminar approach. Combination with TESSYS® allows for a 360° decompression of the spinal canal. With the Shrill system and its various drills and shavers also a bony decompression is possible.
Help with persistent pain: Effective facet joint nerve ablation under full endoscopic view. Clinical experiences suggest a much longer-lasting pain relief than with the percutaneous technique3.
