Pinched Nerve Treatment
If you've been diagnosed with a pinched nerve and are looking for treatment, Dr. Tony Mork, MD in Newport Beach, CA and Naples, FL offers a cutting edge treatment referred to as endoscopic spine surgery to treat pinched nerves as well as the conditions that may cause the pinched nerve to begin with.
Typically pinched nerves can be treated with an anti-inflammatory, oral corticosteroids, physical therapy, and pain can be managed with narcotics or steroid injections. In severe cases where pain persists surgery may be the only option and Dr. Mork offers minimally invasive surgery to correct the issue.

The most important thing to understand before back surgery is the correct diagnosis to determine what’s causing the Pinched Nerves. The cause could be bony or soft tissue and must be determined before surgery since success depends on the correct diagnosis. This requires a careful evaluation and correlation of the history, the MRI findings, and the CT scan when necessary.

Whether the nerve is being pinched or compressed by a disc herniation or overgrowth of bone causing stenosis, the endoscope (7-8 mm) is the ultimate in “minimally invasive” when removing disc or bone overgrowth. Endoscopic spine surgery is also the best approach to avoid a fusion and minimize collateral soft tissue damage.
Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Minimal incision size
Minimal recovery time
Minimal risk of infection
Minimal soft tissue damage
