In 1993, Dr. Destandau designed the ENDOSPINE® instrument to apply the endoscopic technique to spinal surgery. The small size of the incision reduces muscle trauma and postoperative pain and facilitates a rapid resumption of activities.
Dr. Destandau has operated more than 10,000 Lumbar Disc Herniated patients using this technique, regardless of the level, position, migration of the hernia, and even if it is a recurrence.
Benefits of Endoscopic Surgery:
- The average duration of hospitalization is 2 days
- The resumption of the walk is immediate
- No post-operative care: No drain nor sutures to remove
- Fast recovery
Benefits of ENDOSPINE®:
- The presence of the camera allows a very good viewing
- The field of view is wide and direct, unlike any other minimally invasive techniques
- This technique allows a reduction rate of infectious complications thanks to the instruments that never touch the skin
- The small size of the scar is another aesthetic advantage

It's an old tecnique, well presented and explained. Unfortunatly I don't think it can be considered superior to the microscopy tecnique.
We had the oportunity to observe six live surgeries of different kind; I realy appreciate this. Dr. Destendau and her collegue Dr. Rue shared their experience honedtly and generously.
The course was presented on internet as an international congress about endoscopic spinal surgery but it was not so. It was a course on a particular endoscopic technique, nothing else. It was a bit cheeky to advertise it as such a great event. It was interesting anyway. A bit disappointed for the gala diner, while the wine tasting on the first evening was great.
Very fine course and plenty of time for questions and answers. All instructors were very approachable and answered questions thoroughly.
<p>Excellent inputs, leisurely paced, with a lot of time to interact , great hospitality, an experience worth repeating </p>
