Minimally Invasive Laminectomy

Minimally Invasive Non-Fusion

Minimally invasive non-fusion surgeries include endoscopic discectomies and endoscopic laminectomies that can be performed through incisions less than half an inch and require just a band-aid.

These procedures require no sutures to remove. Muscle fibers, ligaments and tendons are meticulously preserved. There is less operative time, less anesthesia and less blood loss.

These procedures are out-patient. They allow you to return to work and back to a pain free lifestyle quicker than traditional surgery.
