Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures

If you suffer from a severe chronic back or neck pain issue, it’s time to stop the pain and start living your life to the fullest! Although you could choose open spine surgery, that would involve a couple of days stay in a hospital, and a long painful recovery – why would you? There is an alternative that has been the clear choice for most severe back pain patients for the past 10 years, a minimally invasive spine procedure.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive spine procedures; and why would you choose minimally invasive spine surgery vs open spine surgery? With minimally invasive surgery, you would have a smaller incision, less blood loss, less chance of complications, and a quicker recovery time – need we say more?
