Spine Surgery

What are minimally invasive surgery and microsurgery ?

Minimally invasive surgery involves small incisions and the use of an endoscope and specialized tools, allowing surgeons to operate on the spine with less disruption to surrounding tissue. This approach leads to fewer complications, faster recovery, and quicker return to regular activities for patients.

Microsurgery, on the other hand, involves intricate procedures using a microscope and specialized instruments, allowing surgeons to work with extreme precision on tiny structures in the spine or elsewhere in the body.

Which Spinal Issues Can Benefit from Minimally Invasive Surgery or Microsurgery?

Herniated Disc

PPatients suffer severe leg or arm pain due to a pinched nerve caused by ruptured disc material. Microsurgery removes this material via small instruments and a microscope under spinal anesthesia, with 95% reporting excellent pain relief.

Spinal Stenosis

Degeneration and arthritis narrow the spinal canal, leading to nerve damage causing pain, numbness, and paralysis. Microsurgery removes bone or tissue to relieve nerve pressure, improving the patient's condition.

Spinal Fusion

Vertebrae are fused to treat instability, deformities, or degeneration. Laparoscopes and spinal cages are used through small abdomen incisions to eliminate painful motion, reduce nerve irritation, and enhance function.

Spinal Deformity

Scoliosis, kyphosis, fractures, and tumors require major surgeries from front and back approaches. Minimally invasive techniques now allow simultaneous work on both sides, proving safer, less complicated, aiding faster recovery, and cost-effective.
