Minimally Invasive Treatments
Since our founding in 1977, we’ve focused intently on developing surgical techniques that produce the best possible outcomes for our patients and their families. Minimally invasive spinal surgery often achieves the same effect as traditional surgery, but through smaller incisions resulting in less trauma to muscles.
Minimally invasive surgery techniques include a variety of different surgery types and are sometimes used in conjunction with other spinal surgery procedures to treat various neck and back conditions resulting in less trauma to muscles.
Surgery is sometimes done through small tubes. There are minimally invasive techniques for several spinal surgeries, including discectomy and fusion. However, this method cannot be applied to all patients. Often, a minimally invasive method of placing pedicle screws and rods is combined with a traditional fusion.
