Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a specialized surgical technique aimed at treating spine disorders with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, we offer comprehensive care for spine conditions, including minimally invasive spine surgery, to provide patients with effective treatment options while minimizing surgical risks and recovery time.

This approach utilizes advanced surgical tools and technologies to access the spine through small incisions, typically less than one inch in size, as opposed to traditional open surgery, which requires larger incisions and extensive muscle dissection. By employing specialized instruments and techniques, MISS allows surgeons to access the spine while sparing surrounding muscles and tissues, resulting in reduced trauma, less postoperative pain, and faster recovery for patients.

Minimally invasive spine surgery can be used to treat a variety of spine conditions, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, spinal deformities, and spinal tumors. Common procedures performed using this approach include microdiscectomy, laminectomy, spinal fusion, and spinal decompression.

During the procedure, specialized surgical instruments and a tubular retractor are used to create a pathway to the affected area of the spine, allowing the surgeon to perform the necessary intervention with precision and accuracy. Real-time imaging techniques such as fluoroscopy or intraoperative navigation may be utilized to enhance visualization and ensure optimal surgical outcomes.

Benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery include smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and a lower risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery. Additionally, patients typically experience less postoperative pain and require less pain medication during the recovery period.

At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, our team of spine specialists and orthopedic surgeons are highly experienced in performing minimally invasive spine surgery. We prioritize patient safety and satisfaction, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and evidence-based practices to deliver optimal surgical outcomes.
