Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery


Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) treats a variety of spinal disorders using very small incisions  (usually < 2 cm) and advanced technology through the use of specialized instruments (e.g. endoscopy, tubes, etc.). There is less pain, decreased hospital time, improved cosmetic scar appearance and decreased blood loss compared to "open" (larger incision) techniques.

Spinal conditions that can be treated using MIS procedures include:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities (scoliosis, kyphosis)
  • Spinal infections
  • Spinal instability
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal Tumors
  • Spinal Fractures
