The goal of minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) is to stabilize the vertebral bones and spine joints and/or relieve pressure being applied to the spinal nerves – often a result of conditions such as a spinal instability, bone spurs, herniated discs, scoliosis or spinal tumors.

As opposed to open spine surgery, minimally invasive surgical approaches can be faster, safer and require less recovery time. There is reduced trauma to the muscles and soft tissues – and the potential benefits to the patient are:

  • Smaller skin incisions
  • Less blood loss from surgery
  • Reduced risk of muscle damage
  • Reduced risk of infection and postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery and less rehabilitation
  • Less pain medications necessary after surgery

Some conditions treated using MIS procedures are:

  • Degenerated disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
  • Spinal infections
  • Spinal instability
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal tumors

The spinal nerves, vertebrae and discs are located deep inside the body and any approach to gain access to the spinal areas require moving the muscle tissue out of the way. Minimally invasive spine surgery utilizes small incision (s) and guidance instruments and/or microscopic video cameras through these incisions – all to minimize damage to the surrounding muscles and soft tissue.
