Abstract

Lumbar decompressive surgery is a standard surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. Many surgical techniques have been introduced, ranging from open surgery to percutaneous procedures. Minimally invasive techniques are preferred because of the less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stay. Uniportal percutaneous endoscopic decompression has technical difficulties due to the narrow field. Biportal percutaneous endoscopic decompression is a satisfactory technique that can compensate for the shortcomings and provide sufficient decompression.
