Minimally Invasive

Why Minimally Invasive?

At DISC Spine Institute our doctors are board certified and deliver the best patient care in the industry. Minimally Invasive spine techniques have revolutionized how patients recover and get to a pain-free life style in an out-patient procedure.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive?

The advances in minimally invasive techniques over the past 10 years has revolutionized the way spinal surgeons treat the spine. Unfortunately, most surgeons trained prior to the development and refinement of these techniques or are simply not experienced in, or comfortable with, these advanced and technically difficult procedures.

Our surgical techniques are often outpatient procedures with incisions as small as 3mm.
