Technical innovations are supposed to make a person’s life more comfortable. It is a continuous process. There are special factors a surgeon has to take notice of when a patient is confronted with a surgical treatment. Firstly, standardization of the treatment. Then avoidance of unnecessary anatomical damage. With special tools this avoidance of unnecessary damage is possible. A fascinating experience for me as a child was when I took my wrist watch for repair and the watchmaker examined my watch with a loupe for its possible error like diagnosing a patient. A watch containing hundreds of millimetric pieces which had to be magnified with a special tool to fix it, like a surgeon uses special surgical tools for treating a patient.

Endoscopic approaches have been used for a century now, but in neurosurgery it became popular after Yaşargil introduced the surgical microscope. Today’s microendoscopic procedures rely on Yaşargil’s nuances. All in all, the aim of endoscopic spine surgery is based on seeing a magnification of the surgical field with the endoscope, and treating the patient. Tissue damage is minimal compared to classic microsurgery and it is certain that in the future newer surgical tools will be developed to provide much better outcomes.

In my faculty years, gastroenterologists could only observe the pathology, take images and biopsies with endoscopic tools. Today, the editor of this book was able to remove a patient’s intradural tumor with the endoscope which is a quite challenging procedure. The authors of this book and the ones who contributed to it are those who practiced their art with love and provided an excellent end product with their work. I hereby congratulate Dr. Salim Şentürk for his contribution to Turkish medicine and wish him all the best for his bright future.
