Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery: A Faster Road to Recovery
When many people think of back surgery, one thing comes to mind: a long road to recovery.
While this may have been the case in the past, things have changed as of late. Now, thanks to minimally invasive spine surgery, this is no longer the case. Instead, your back pain can be treated, all without the need for a long and painful recovery period.
Consider this: minimally invasive microdiscectomy and decompression can be performed through a band aid incision. With minimal dissection, it’s possible for a herniated disc to be removed as an outpatient procedure.
You’re reading that right: you don’t even need to stay the night at a hospital.
Many back problems can be treated through minimally invasive surgery. For example, scoliosis in adults remains a serious problem. Despite the fact that this condition was left to worsen for many years, patients can take advantage of a minimally invasive procedure that cures them of chronic pain.
It’s a shame to think about the past and realize that people lived in pain because they were scared of the recovery time associated with back surgery. Fortunately, this is no longer the approach that patients need to take.
Thanks to minimally invasive surgery, it’s possible to cure a variety of back and spine conditions without a long recovery period.
