Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
What Is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?
Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is an alternative to traditional open surgical procedures performed to treat different spinal disorders, such as degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, scoliosis, and spinal stenosis. Spine surgery performed minimally invasively offers many potential benefits, such as small incisions, less cutting through soft tissues (eg, ligaments, muscles), outpatient options, less post-operative pain, and faster recovery.
What is the success rate of minimally invasive spine surgery?
Minimally invasive spine surgery “MIS” has over 90% of success rate. You will be surprised to know that the success rate of traditional or open surgery is over 95%
Can you live a normal life after spinal fusion?
Even people requiring bigger surgeries like spinal fusion are 90% likely to return to work and stay at work long term. While most people recover from back pain through exercise and healthy lifestyles, those who require surgery can expect to return to work and "get their life back" too.
