The UBE (Unilateral Biportal Endoscopy) technique is a surgical procedure developed more than 10 years ago in South Korea by Dr. Song.
It is an endoscopic technique performed through two small incisions (about 10mm each).
This coblation technology, gently and precisely removes the targeted tissues by low-temperature chemical process, without burning tissues in process.
This makes it possible to work safely even near neurological structures.
The technique makes it possible to perform all types of spinal surgeries, e.g. lumbar and cervical disc herniation, narrow lumbar canal and lumbar arthrodesis; and is a significant contribution to the patients’ care management.
Below you can learn about some of proven benefits of the UBE technique:
