Minimally invasive spine surgery


It is also called as MISS. Minimally invasive spine surgery is a surgical method used for treating the different spinal disorders with the help of specialized video cameras and instruments that are passed through small incisions (less than 2 cm) in the back, chest or abdomen to access the spine and perform the needed surgery.

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
  • Spinal infections
  • Spinal instability including spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal tumors
  • spinal stenosis.

Advantages of Minimally invasive spine surgery?

Minimally invasive spine surgery gives several advantages over open surgery Because of the reduced trauma to the muscles and soft tissues (compared to open procedures).

  • Due to small smaller skin incisions (sometimes as small as several millimeters) less skin problem
  • Loss of blood is less during surgery
  • Faster recovery after surgery
  • Stay hospital at less time as compared to other surgery (one week )
  • Reduced risk of muscle damage, since less or no cutting of the muscle, is required
  • Less soft tissue and muscle damage
  • Less scarring
  • Less soft tissue and muscle damage
  • Reduced risk of infection (especially because incisions are significantly smaller in MISS)
  • Smaller incisions (rather than one large incision)
