Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Spine Surgery
For Back and Leg Pain Relief
Surgery of the spine can often be performed through either an open surgical approach or a minimally invasive approach.
There are advantages in some cases to having a lumbar surgery performed through a minimally invasive approach, while in some cases it is best to use the traditional open surgical approach.
Some procedures that lend themselves to minimally invasive surgery include:
• Lumbar Discectomy/Cervical Discectomy
• Lumbar Fusion/Cervical Fusion
• Lumbar Laminectomy/Cervical Laminectomy
As the technologies and surgical instrumentation for minimally invasive surgery continue to improve, so will this approach be used more often in lumbar procedures. Be sure to ask your neurosurgeon which surgery option is best for your particular condition.
