Minimizing Pain Through Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Back of Woman with Two Band-AidsBack pain often leaves patients with restricted mobility. Minimally invasive spine surgery minimizes blood loss, muscle strain, and tissue trauma which significantly reduces the amount of scarring. This also results in less post-operative pain and a quicker recovery time, all while achieving similar but less painful outcomes compared to larger incision sites. Minimally invasive spine surgery can be an ideal option for patients experiencing sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disorder, spinal fracture, spinal tumors, bone spurs, spinal instability, spinal infections, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, and spondylolisthesis , degenerative spine disease, as well as lumbar and cervical pain.

Understanding Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery is considered an advanced technique using state-of-the-art medical equipment. The spine surgeon carefully makes a small precise incision then places tubular retractors for holding the surrounding tissues and muscles in place. A microscope is then placed over the surgical site to further improve visualization. These efforts reduce the amount of retraction surrounding the operative site is what significantly decreases the amount of post-operative discomfort felt by the patient.

Degenerative disc disease can occur anywhere along the spinal column. Herniated discs most frequently occur in the lumbar back, then the neck, and lastly, the thoracic area.
