Frisco Back Surgeon Performs Minimally-Invasive Surgery
At the The Neuro & Spine Wellness Center, our NeuroSpine team and back surgeon perform minimally-invasive spine surgery (M.I.S.S.) or keyhole spine surgeries for patients whose individual conditions make them appropriate candidates. Typically, our back surgeon will only recommend surgery after nonsurgical treatments don’t offer the pain relief initially hoped for. Discuss your options with your doctor to find out about the benefits and how they may apply to your condition and treatment.
What is Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgery?
This spine surgery involves inserting an endoscope with a camera so that the spine surgeon gets a better view and easier access to the afflicted area of the spine. The results can be see in benefits such as:
- Reduced Pain & Less Muscle Retraction
- Minimal Scar Tissue
- Smaller Incisions
- Reduced Blood Loss
- Less Time in Hospital
- Potential Outpatient Procedure
- Faster Recovery
- Less Tissue Damage
Conditions that May Benefit
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Infections in the Spine
- Instabilities in the Spine
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Stenosis
- Vertebral Compression Fractures
It’s important that all patients are educated to understand that not everyone can be a candidate for minimally-invasive procedures; it’s dependent on each individual case and the severity of their condition. As with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks involved, but for some people minimally-invasive procedures pose less risk and provide better results than open surgical procedures.
