Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Surgery

Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Surgery
Minimally invasive scoliosis surgery is an endoscopic procedure performed through a small incision rather than one long incision. So that there is less scarring, and faster healing time. In this approach a thin telescope-like instrument with a tiny video camera called an endoscope is inserted through one of the incisions, providing the surgeon with real-time, internal imaging of the patient’s body. These images and intraoperative X-ray images act as a guide for the surgeon to perform the surgery.
 
Because it is a far less invasive procedure, a series of sequential dilators to dilate the muscles without having to cut into them. The major advantages of this type of procedure are:
  • Few small scars rather than one large scar
  • Allows for minimal blood loss
  • Allows for minimal tissue damage
  • Less painful, during and after the procedure
  • Faster healing and recovery
  • Less risk of infection
