uses the latest advanced technology to treat back pain and neck pain
Benefits of MISS
Minimizes the trauma to the back muscles.
By preserving the integral back muscles and minimizing muscle atrophy, MISS alters the bio-mechanics of the back to a lesser extent than traditional open surgery.
Other benefits of MISS over the traditional open spine surgery include:
Small surgery scars
Less risk of infection
Minimal blood loss during surgery
Minimal post-operative pain
Shorter hospital stay
Quicker return to work and normal activities
Conditions suitable for MISS
Some of the spinal conditions treated using MISS techniques are:
Degenerative disc disease
Spinal column tumors
Risk and Complications
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved with minimally invasive spine surgery. The risks and complications of MISS may include infection, bleeding, nerve injury, or spinal cord injury as well as complications due to general anesthesia.
