Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery has evolved over the last 30 years to treat and repair a wide variety of spinal disorders including herniated discs, deformity, injuries and degenerative disc disease.
In contrast to traditional open back surgery that requires a large incision causing more damage to muscles and tissues, minimally invasive spine surgery has become the leading way to treat spine problems. Minimally invasive spine surgery also lessens the hospital stay, (many procedures can be performed as day surgery or 23 hour stay), reduces pain, results in less operative blood loss, allows for faster return to work and activities, and reduces the risk of infection than with traditional open back surgery.
