Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Back Pain Physician
Minimally invasive techniques reduce the trauma associated with surgical procedures. This allows patients to recover faster. Patients who choose minimally invasive surgery may experience: shorter recovery, less pain after surgery, and less scarring.Minimally invasive surgery usually involves making tiny incisions, sometimes no more than a quarter-inch in legnth. This results in less trauma to the body then experienced with an open incision. Through these incisions, instruments along with a tiny camera are inserted allowing the surgeon and staff to view the operation from a flat panel monitor.

Because minimally invasive surgery usually requires only tiny incisions, patients generally return to their normal daily activities much faster than with traditional surgery.
