Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Traditionally spine surgery has involved large incisions used to access the spine and associated anatomy needed to treat conditions of the spine. Over the last several years advanced procedures such as minimally invasive spine surgery (sometimes referred to as MIS) have allowed surgeons to reduce the incision size needed in surgery. Due to the fact that minimally invasive spine procedures require a smaller incision it means that less damage to the muscles surrounding the spine.

Like all spine surgery treatments the team at Spine Physicians Institute will first explore whether or not non-invasive treatments such as medication and physical therapy before the recommended.

Two very common minimally invasive spine procedures that are used include:

  • MIS Lumbar diskectomy
  • MIS Lumbar fusion

Again, not all conditions can be effectively treated using minimally invasive spine surgery, it is important that a proper diagnosis is made to make sure that the best possible treatment is provided.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Types of MIS Surgery

  • Minimally

    Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

    The advent of minimally invasive surgery has provided surgeons new techniques for treating clinical disease. Within the field of spinal surgery, techniques in lumbar interbody arthrodesis have shown a continued evolution of procedural approach and instrumentation. Minimally invasive spine surgery aims to reduce approach related morbidity, while producing clinical outcomes

  • Microscopic

    Microscopic Posterior Cervical Discectomy

    Microscopic posterior cervical discectomy is a surgery that is performed for a herniated disc in the cervical spine that is causing the patient neck pain along with radiating shoulder or arm pain.  The surgery can be done either minimally invasively with a tubular retractor or with a small, formal open
