Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery is surgery. In the “traditional” method of open surgery, your surgeon will make a long incision in your skin. In order for your surgeon to clearly see the site of surgery, a relatively large amount of muscle and surrounding soft tissue is scattered or pulled out of the canal or removed from the bone. This can result in further muscle damage and pain after surgery.

During the MISS, the health care system made a small incision. He then inserts a device called a tubular retractor. It’s a hard pipe tool. This creates a tunnel in the problem area of ​​the spine. It pushes soft muscles and soft tissues around the area. The surgeon can then place small tools on his back in the tunnel. The surgeon also uses a special operating microscope to view spinal x-rays in real time.

Spine surgeries can be performed using a minimally invasive approach:

Many types of spinal surgeries can be performed in a minimally invasive manner. These include:

  • Spinal fusion, which is often performed with degenerative or “slippery” plates.
  • Correction of deformities such as scoliosis and kyphosis.
  • Decompression of spinal tumors.
  • Healing and strengthening of compression fractures of the vertebrae.
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis.
  • Infection in the spine.

Are You a Candidate for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Minimally invasive spinal surgery offers many benefits: smaller incisions, less pain, less risk, and faster recovery time. However, MISS is still a surgical procedure. Keep in mind that less than 5% of people with back or neck pain need spinal surgery – and surgery is the last resort to treat pain caused by spinal disease.

If non-surgical treatments such as medications, physical therapy and / or spinal injections are not effective in reducing symptoms within 3 to 6 months, you may be a candidate for spine surgery. Of course, some types of spinal diseases require urgent or immediate surgery. Talk openly to your doctor or spine specialist about your pain and symptoms, along with the results of the various therapies you have tried.
