What is Laser Endoscopic Spine Surgery (LESS)?

Dr. Choll Kim is one of only a handful of Surgeons in the world to Master Laser Endoscopic Spine Surgery (LESS). LESS is a state-of-the-art treatment for herniated discs, annular tears, radiculopathy, and sciatica. A 1 cm incision is made to allow for an endoscope and non-electrical laser to safely treat the area. The tiny incision is covered with a band-aid! Most patients are walking within 1-hour, go home same day and return to work after 1-2 weeks!
