Dr Yeung specializes in diagnosing and treating the patho-anatomy of back pain and sciatica from painful degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine, particularly discogenic pain from toxic annular tears, disc herniations, lumbar spondylosis and foraminal stenosis. His over 10,000 endscopic procedures since 1991 are effective in relieving both back and leg pain, by visualizing ,decompressing, and ablating the pain generator with an endoscope, using imaging as a guide, but confirming the pain source with a through history and clinical exam, followed by diagnostic and therapeutic injections. When the cinical parameters are validated, His philosophy and technique, guides his surgical technique that ?guarantees? the anticipated surgical result for 2-10 years. The least invasive surgical procedure stages surgical intervention in order to avoid fusing as the last ?bridge burning? surgery even for deformity and instability for stratified surgical indications. He is the developer of the Yeung Endoscopic Spine System, and has interest in developing a robotic and image guidance system to facilitate his technique to spine surgeons in training. He is helping establish an academic training center at the University of New Mexico, his medical school alma mater.
