Why Is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Better?

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) employs techniques that are less stressful on your back. Unlike open surgery, in which the surgeon makes a long incision along your spine, MISS requires small incisions in which your neurosurgeon inserts tools to perform the necessary treatment. The tools used in MISS typically include:

  • A tubular retractor to guide the instruments
  • A small camera to give the doctor real-time images of the area being treated
  • Endoscopic instruments, which have long handles that reach the area without need of a larger opening

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Reduced need to cut adjoining muscles and ligaments
  • Less chance of infection
  • Quicker recovery time
