The Top Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

If you’re faced with the prospect of neck or back surgery, it’s only natural to be scared. You’re worried about the pain. You’re worried about the time off from work. And that’s just the start.

Fortunately, the medical industry has made major strides in regards to minimally invasive surgery. If you’re a candidate for this procedure, you can take advantage of a variety of benefits:

·      Increased safety. Due to a smaller incision site, trauma and blood loss is kept to a minimum.

·      Faster recovery time. For many, this is the top benefit of minimally invasive surgery. With a traditional back surgery, for instance, the recovery period often stands in the range of one to two months. With a minimally invasive procedure, however, the recovery time decreases all the way down to one to two weeks.

·      Less time in the hospital. Who wants to spend time in a hospital? The answer is simple: nobody. With a minimally invasive surgery, don’t be surprised if you’re only in a hospital for a day (at the most).

It may sound too good to be true, but minimally invasive surgery has come a long way over the years. If you want to learn more about this type of procedure, don’t hesitate to contact our office.
