Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery is an advanced surgical procedure in which a large incision (5 to 6 inches) is not necessary to repair damaged structures of the back. Specialized instruments and endoscopes, computer-assisted cameras with attached lighting, are inserted through small incisions of two centimeters (“keyholes”) or less at the site of injury. Through the keyhole incisions, the cameras allow surgeons optimal visual access to the affected area. The procedure is advantageous to patients because it achieves the same goals as traditional back surgery without the need to retract muscles from bone.

Medical professionals designed the techniques used in minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) for patient convenience and to lessen the disruption of the natural anatomy of the human back. Less injury to tissues like muscles, ligaments and tendons will help preserve the original state of the spine for a speedy recovery. Other noted benefits in during and after the procedure include:

  • Less anesthesia
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Minimal post-surgery pain
  • Shortened hospital stay
  • Decreased visual evidence of external scarring

MISS is the clear alternative for patients afflicted with deformities and conditions such as:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal infections
  • Compressed tumors
  • Spinal instability
  • Pinched nerves
  • Vertebrae fractures
