Clarification on points raised on NTFGH media release

Following the media release on Endoscopic Spine Surgery in NTFGH dated 13/8/2020, there was consternation amongst the SSS members with regards to the accuracy and veracity of statements made during the event leading to potential misinformation of the general public. 

Clarification has been sought from the parties responsible and the following points have been made in apology.


  1. Endoscopic Spine Surgery is not a pioneering technique in Singapore and has been performed since the last decade.

  2. Endoscopic Spine Surgery is suitable for only a select group of patients with lumbar discal or regenerative pathology.

  3. Endoscopic discectomy or decompression has not been proven to be superior to conventional open or MIS surgery.

  4. Same day Spine Surgery is not the exclusive domain of Endoscopic Spine Surgery.

We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate the importance of being professional and judicious when engaging with the media on spine surgical techniques.
