Relieving Spinal Symptoms
Advances in medical technology allow spinal surgeons the ability use very small incisions and specialized techniques to target the specific areas of your spine that are the root cause a patients pain. Prior to the advent of modern technology, this was simply not possible.
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are known for reduced recovery time, lower infection and complication rates, minimized surgical pain and trauma, less blood loss, and faster surgery times. It has also been shown to reduce the overall costs associated with surgery because of shortened hospital stays – true MISS is an outpatient procedure.
With the passage of time, minimally invasive surgeries will become the norm and older more invasive surgeries will become a relic of the past. The primary reason traditional techniques are still practiced is because of the newness of MISS techniques and the steep learning curve for physicians trained in the traditional ways.
