In brief: An Orthopaedic Spine

Surgeons that is well trained could perform an endoscopic posterior cervical endoscopic surgical procedure to decompress your cervical spine.
But you have to make sure you are not focused more on the secondary goal than on the primary goal (properly addressing your pathology and resolving your symptoms). Some pathologies may not be best treated with endoscopy, so beware, and listen to your surgeon.

In brief: See below

Cervical stenosis cannot be treated by endoscopic surgery.
The stenosis that you are referring to is a narrowing of the foramina where the nerve roots leave the spinal cord. This can be treated by endoscopic surgery. The procedure was developed by neurosurgeons, though some orthopedic surgeons are no offering this procedure.
