Choosing the right physician is the most important decision. You need a surgeon who listens, understands and offers the best alternatives for your specific medical condition.

Open surgery vs. minimally invasive surgery

Traditionally, spine surgery is usually performed as open surgery. This entails opening the operative site with a long incision so the surgeon can view and access the spinal anatomy. However, technology has advanced to the point where more spine conditions can be treated with minimally invasive techniques.

Because minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), does not involve long incisions, open manipulation of the muscles and tissue surrounding the spine is avoided, therefore, leading to shorter operative time. In general, reducing intraoperative (during surgery) manipulation of soft tissues results in less postoperative pain and a faster recovery.

Am I a Possible Candidate for Spine Surgery?

Still in Pain after extended nonsurgical or conservative treatment? You may need to consider spine surgery as a treatment for back pain. You may also need to consider surgery if you answer “yes” to any of these questions:

  • Do you lean over the grocery cart for support while shopping?
  • Do you have pain in your back or tingling and numbness in your extremities?
  • Have you tried nonsurgical treatments such as massage therapy, yoga, acupuncture or chiropractic care without relief?
  • Has your physician recommended back surgery?
