New Tampa Surgery Center Brings In New Back Pain Treatment

Written by Laura Dyrda | January 17, 2014

Pain management physician Rudolfo Panganiban, MD, will now perform the AccuraScope back pain procedure at the New Tampa Surgery Center, part of the Surgery Partners system.

The AccuraScope is a minimally invasive procedure that diagnoses and treats intervertebral lumbar discs, spinal stenosis and other chronic back pain causes. The procedure uses an endoscopic fiber-optic scope to examine the spinal canal and discs for abnormalities and then is able to treat the cause.

The procedure usually takes 30 to 40 minutes, according to a news release. The outpatient surgery center has AAAHC accreditation and includes two operating rooms and two procedure rooms.
