Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery can treat a variety of spinal disorders and conditions:
- Back pain (lumbar pain)
- Neck pain (cervical pain)
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Cervical stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spine fractures
About Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques for the Spine
Minimally invasive surgical techniques utilize specialized retractors that allow a surgical procedure to be done through smaller incisions with much less tissue disruption. One of these specialized retractors is called a tubular retractor, which is a series of gradually expanding tubes that gently and progressively dilate and separate muscles and soft tissues to expose the operative field. Using specialized instruments, surgery is performed through the tube.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
The benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery include:
- Decreased pain
- Shorter hospital stays
- Quicker recovery
Minimally invasive surgery is considered the leading edge for many spinal procedures and will continue to develop as new techniques continue to evolve. Not every patient is a candidate for minimally invasive spinal surgery. To see if you are a candidate for this type of surgery, you must be fully evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who is experienced in these techniques.
