Minimally invasive spine surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery

Traditionally Spine surgery is done as "open surgery” which requires the surgeon to make long skin incisions and cut the muscle along the back to reach the spine, such extensive surgery increases blood loss, risk of infection and cause back pain there by prolonging the recovery period and leads to progression of disease at adjacent levels. In recent days, however, technological advances have allowed more spine conditions to be treated safely with a minimally invasive surgical technique.

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is less invasive, in these procedures, specialized instruments are used to access the spine through small incisions allowing the surgeon to see only the location where the problem exists in the spine.
