What is a minimally invasive spine surgery ?

Updated: Aug 14, 2018

To understand minimally invasive surgeries, we must understand how traditionally spine surgeries were done.

Traditionally, when performing spine surgeries, we used very large retractors.

Nowadays, we can perform the same surgeries using a small tube or a tubular retractor.

We can dock the tube, exactly on the level that we need to operate on, and through that tube our Instruments can go through in and out. We can achieve essentially the same results as with traditional surgeries with a narrower incision.

there are different types of minimally invasive surgeries. Examples; decompressions, fusions or other types of micro surgeries such as what's called laser surgery.

All these surgeries are variants of similar procedures that are performed on the spine.
