First Time Procedure – Foreshore

Dr Ian Victor is an accomplished spinal neurosurgeon. Dr Victor performed the first unilateral biportal Endoscopic Laminectomy and discectomy at Cure Day Hospital Foreshore on his patient who experienced a lot of pain from an entrapped nerve.  UBE(unilateral biportal endoscopy) is the natural evolution and latest in minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques that have various advantages including a shorter recovery period. The procedure entails two small(4mm) cuts that are used for the endoscope and spinal instruments respectively. The nerve root is then decompression and the extruded disc fragment is removed causing resolution of the patient’s symptoms.

The procedure went smoothly, and Dr Victor’s patient recovered well, received physiotherapy, and was able to go home pain-free 3 hours post-op.

Dr Ian Victor’s specialty includes minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery, consistently prioritizing the highest standard of patient care.
