Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) surgeries are performed to stabilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints. They also relieve the pressure being applied to the spinal nerves. The procedures utilize small instruments and/or microscopic video cameras that require minimum incision to reach the target site.

Spinal disorders that can be treated by MIS procedures

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
  • Spinal infections
  • Spinal instability
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal Tumors
  • Bone spurs

Common MIS surgery options

Some of the most common techniques deployed for MIS surgery include:

  • Discetomy
  • Spinal decompression
  • MIS TLIF (Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion)

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

In comparison with open spine surgery, minimally invasive surgical approaches have following benefits:

  • Faster, safer and effective procedure
  • Less recovery time
  • Reduced trauma to the muscles and soft tissues
  • Better cosmetic results from smaller skin incisions
  • Less blood loss & pain
  • Reduced risk of infection and other post-operative complications
  • Early and less rehabilitation required
  • Diminished reliance on pain medications after surgery
  • Early return to daily activities and work
  • Some MIS surgeries are performed as outpatient procedures with no hospitalization required and utilize only local anaesthesia
