    Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)  
  Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is more and more becoming the method of choice over traditional surgery. Minimally invasive procedures typically result in less pain, scarring and a quicker recovery time for patients, as well as a reduction in health care costs. The Institute for Spine Care offers the widest range of minimally invasive spine procedures available anywhere.

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is the latest trend in surgery, but what exactly is it? Also known as minimal access spine surgery or endoscopic surgery, MIS refers to a growing number of surgical procedures that achieve the same surgical results as traditional operations on the spine, but are performed with much smaller incisions and little or no cutting of muscle. This is done with the help of specially designed instruments called tubular retractors, and the aid of endoscopes (small cameras) which are inserted through small keyhole sized surgical incisions, and allow the surgeon to see deep inside the spine without removing all the muscle that covers it. These procedures can now be done on the neck, mid back, and low back for a wide variety of common problems.

This type of surgery, in comparison to standard surgery, offers many benefits to patients. Our data clearly shows that patients have:

Less Blood Loss
Reduced Need for Blood Transfusion
Less pain
Shorter hospital stay
Quicker recovery
Minimal scarring

It has been noted that these factors can also result in fewer post-operative infections, fewer complications, and better long-term results.

Minimally invasive spine surgery does, however require specific and extensive training to become accomplished in its use. Spine surgeons at the Institute for Spine Care have been performing these techniques for up to 10 years, and collectively they have the most clinical experiences with MIS procedures in the country, having established themselves as leaders in the development of many of the techniques used today.
