Minimally Invasive Surgery Excellence Driven. Superior Results.

Minimally invasive spine surgery avoids the need for a large incision and extensive damage to the muscles surrounding the spine and results in a quicker recovery.

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a broad description of several techniques used to treat spinal pathology. These procedures are commonly performed in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Minimally invasive spine surgery is performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. In most cases, this results in less pain after surgery and a faster recovery.

Spine surgery is only considered when a period of nonsurgical treatment — such as medications, shots and physical therapy — has not relieved the painful symptoms caused by your back or neck problem. In addition, surgery is only considered if your doctor can localize the source of your pain, such as a herniated disk, spinal stenosis or osteophytes.

Is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery right for me?

Although only your surgeon can tell you if minimally invasive spine surgery is the right treatment plan for you, you might be a qualifying candidate if:

  • You are experiencing pain from degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, vertebral fracture, scoliosis, instability, or spondylosis

  • Your pain radiates down your arms or legs

  • You have tried other treatment options like (but not limited to) physical therapy, bracing, or pain medication without success

  • Your condition has been worsening rather than getting better
