Two spine surgeons performed the first endoscopic spine surgery at Reston (Va.) Hospital Center.

Here are five takeaways:

1. Colin Haines, MD, and Christopher Good, MD, are both spine surgeons with Reston-based Virginia Spine Institute.

2. The spine surgeons used a high-definition endoscope to perform a microdiscectomy through an incision smaller than 1 centimeter.

3. The procedure is typically performed as an outpatient surgery, as patients require less anesthesia and recovery time.

4. Dr. Haines specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic-guided spine surgery and ultrasonic spine surgery.

5. Dr. Good is the president of Virginia Spine Institute. He is considered an expert in complex spine conditions and robotic spine surgery.
