If you need surgery, we offer several minimally invasive surgeries with generally shorter surgery times, hospital stays, and recovery times. Minimally invasive spine surgery is an advanced, highly effective alternative to traditional surgical techniques. Often available on an outpatient basis, these procedures uses a microsurgical technique and a smaller incision to focus on the source of back pain and correct the problem. Although this less-invasive approach cannot correct all spine conditions or injuries, it may be appropriate for:

  • Disc degeneration
  • Fractures
  • Herniated discs
  • Lumbar stenosis
  • Misaligned vertebrae
  • Spinal stenosis

Traditional Surgery
