Lumbar disc herniation is a common disease that presents as low back pain, lower limb pain, numbness, weakness, or claudication etc. For patients whose conservative treatment failed, surgery may be the best option. In recent years, unilateral biportal endoscopic (UBE) spinal surgery for the treatment of lumbar degenerative diseases and other diseases has gradually increased. It is generally believed that UBE surgery has the advantages of a wider field of vision, flexible operation, minimally invasive, and contributing to full nerve decompression and faster recovery.
