Minimally Invasive Surgery

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Some of the major benefits to MIS are:

  • Far less blood loss.
  • Limited soft tissue is being cut, therefore less risk of muscle & tendon damage.
  • Less risk of infection.
  • Much smaller incisions lead to better cosmetic results and much less scarring.
  • Much faster recovery and less rehab time.
  • Less postop pain, and less need for pain medication.
  • Most MIS procedures only require local anesthesia.
  • Shorter procedure, likely to be performed outpatient.
