The Many Advantages of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

SurgeryHave you recently learned that you require spine surgery? Are you concerned that traditional open back surgery will result in a long recovery, along with a variety of other dangerous side effects?

Fortunately, you have another option: minimally invasive spine surgery. This isn’t the right solution for every patient, but it’s something you should absolutely learn more about.

Here are some of the many advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery, as compared to a more traditional approach:

·      Faster recovery time, allowing you to quickly return to your normal life

·      Less time in the hospital, with an average of approximately two days

·      Smaller incision, less scarring, and less blood loss

·      Smaller chance of damage to surrounding muscle and tissue

·      Less pain after the surgery, which helps aid the recovery process

·      Reduced risk of infection

Along with all the above, some people even find that they can have minimally invasive spine surgery in an outpatient center. With this, you may be surprised to find that you can return home within several hours of your surgery.

If nothing else, a focus on the benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery will put you in better position as you decide how to best move forward.
