MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY
Using innovative techniques, cutting-edge technology, and evidence-based medicine, minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) may be a treatment option for your spinal disorder or chronic back and neck pain.
Compared to traditional open spine surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery utilizes the knowledge of anatomical landmarks, along with cutting-edge technology, to treat your spinal condition. Computer-assisted technology (such as neuro-navigation and nerve monitoring) and highly specialized tools and instrumentation, provide for the safe and effective treatment of your pain.
