Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive fusions can be done in the neck and back.  They involve very small incisions typically less than an inch long that are suture less (no sutures to remove).  Muscles fibers, ligaments and tendons are meticulously preserved.  There is less operative time, less anesthesia, and less blood loss. These procedures are commonly done as outpatient or overnight stays.  They allow you to return to work and back to a pain free lifestyle quicker than traditional surgery.
