  • Experiencing utter discomfort while lying down or sitting in the same position
  • Visible deformity in the spine
  • Inability to perform various daily activities
  • Stiffness in the spine

Are You A Right Candidate For Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

For people suffering from severe spinal disorders, if all other treatment options fail, then minimally invasive spine surgery is performed as last resort of treatment.

You are a candidate for advanced surgical process if:

  • Non-surgical treatments do not reduce your symptoms of spinal disorder. These treatments include
  • Medications
  • Physical therapy

Talk to your doctor or spine specialist about your pain and symptoms in detail along with various other treatments that you have tried before. This will help the doctor understand your previous medical treatments and after evaluation, may advise you to undergo surgical treatment to treat back or neck pain.

What are the Procedure For Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

We perform the following steps for you treatment.

Preoperative Details

Our doctors ensure that you are fit for the procedure by performing a series of tests and screening process. You might be prescribed some medicines for a week or two before the surgery to avoid any infections.

Before the operation, the patient receives general anaesthesia and will sleep through the surgical procedure.

Operative Details

The surgeon will make an incision at the affected site and insert a thin telescope-like instrument called an endoscope through the incision. The camera attached inside the endoscope helps the doctor to perform complex operations easily. The surgery is performed through surgical instruments or through robots assisted arms. After the surgery, sutures are closed with surgical tape.

Postoperative Details

The patient may have to stay in the hospital depending on the condition, and in order to have faster recovery, physiotherapy sessions may be required.

What Are The Various Forms Of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Aim of spine surgery is to help the patients suffering from chronic spinal disorders to live a normal life. Following are different spine surgeries:

  • Spinal fusion: This surgery is used to fix two or more vertebrae. Metallic wires, pins, screws, rods, and plates are used for various types of procedures such as minimally-invasive surgery, open surgery, endoscopic, laser surgery, etc.
  • Discectomy or Microdiscectomy: This surgery is used to treat patients suffering from herniated intervertebral discs. This common spinal surgery helps to relieve the pressure on the nerve.
  • Microsurgical: To remove the damaged portion of the disc, the surgeon use a microscope that is inserted through the small incision that is usually less than an inch over the spinal canal.
  • Percutaneous Stitches: A small incision is made to remove the disc portion using an endoscopic surgery at the back of the knee.
  • Laser Surgery: A small bone is removed from the spine through a laser to provide relief from chronic pain in the back or limbs by getting rid of nerve root compression.
  • Spinal Decompression: Using a minimally invasive key-hole approach, relief is provided from compressed nerves by decompressing it.
  • Vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty: Cement is injected through a needle into the vertebrae to provide relief to the patient from the chronic pain and other problems associated with compression fractures of the vertebrae.

Why Benefits Does Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Offers?

MIS has the edge over traditional surgery process:

  • Small Incisions
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Lesser disruption of muscles and tissues
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring

Minimal invasive surgeries give the surgeon added advantage of having close control over the surgical process by using small tools, cameras, and lights that fit through those incisions using the Robotic surgery technique. This also results in a faster recovery of the patients.
