Spinal Surgery FAQ: What Is “Minimally Invasive”?

When you have back troubles, you end up missing out on a lot of the things you used to enjoy. Back problems tend to snowball as well, because your spine is so important to every function of your body. If you have been trying remedies for over six months without success, back surgery is probably your best option for returning to life as you used to know it.

At the Spine Institute of North America, we specialize in minimally invasive spine procedures. We have been addressing frequently asked questions about our procedures. You can explore our latest blog and then check out the questions below!

  1. Are lasers used in your minimally invasive procedures?
    • We use a diverse array of advanced tools in our procedures, including endoscopes, computer navigation, operating microscopes, and lasers.
    • The goal of our operations is to accomplish the same results you would get from a traditional surgery without the large incision.
    • The tools we use are determined by the goals of the operation, which is unique to each patient. That means we will not always use lasers.
  2. Just what do you mean by ‘minimally invasive’?
    • In a minimally invasive spine procedure, your back will not be opened up in the traditional way. Instead, we will get to the trouble spots via a ¼ inch incision and access your back and solve the problem using HD cameras, endoscopes, and other tools specifically designed to access hard-to-reach places.
