The technique of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is regarded groundbreaking, since it successfully treats anomalies of the spinal discs with minimal muscle damage, and less recovery time. Minimally invasive Spine Surgery is also known as Minimal Access Spine Surgery & Endoscopic Spine Surgery.
Minimally invasive Spine Surgery is performed through small incisions, with the help of endoscopic instruments and techniques that are used to have a clear view of the internal organs of the body.
One or more minor incisions, generally less than half an inch are made, through which specially designed instruments and excellent video transmitting machines are inserted. The muscles of the back are moved from their spinal connections to make space for the surgeon to place the rods, screws, bone grafts, etc as required by the surgery.
Compared to traditional open spine surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery utilizes the knowledge of important anatomy, along with cutting-edge technology, to treat your spinal condition without causing undue injury to the surrounding soft tissues. Computer-assisted technology (such as computer navigation and nerve monitoring) and highly specialized tools and instrumentation provide for the safe and effective treatment of your pain.
