Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery


At Pain Physicians NY we offer a minimally invasive approach to treat serious spine conditions including spinal fractures due to osteoporosis, benign lesions or even cancer. Because minimally invasive surgery usually requires only tiny incisions, patients generally return to their normal daily activities much faster than with traditional surgery. Schedule an appointment and find out if you are an appropriate candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery.

We always consider a non-invasive treatment options first before we turn to more invasive procedures like minimally invasive surgery.

Minimally Invasive Cervical, Lumbar Spine Surgery

Advances in technology have made it possible to treat spine problems and spine medical conditions by using minimally invasive surgical techniques.

How can you benefit from a minimally invasive spine surgery?

Advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery:

  • Smaller incision, sometimes no more than a quarter-inch in length, leading to less scarring,
  • Less trauma to the body,
  • Less blood loss,
  • Shorter intra-hospital stay,
  • Less pain medications needed,
  • Faster recovery,
  • Quicker return to daily activities and normal life.

Disadvantages of minimally invasive spine surgery:

  • Not appropriate for everyone
  • Potential for a prolonged operative time
  • Potential risk to convert into an open spine necessary if circumstances require it,
  • Increased exposure to radiation,
  • Difficult to repair a spinal fluid leak if it occurs,
  • Requires a well-trained and competent surgeon.

What is the difference between minimally invasive spine surgery and open spine surgery?

Open spine surgeries are considered as traditional surgical procedures. During an open spine surgery a larger incision will be made, followed by a muscle retraction on the side in order to get a clear view of the spine. This will normally lead to a certain amount of trauma to the body, followed by pain for a longer period of time and a slower recovery. Your intra – hospital stay will be also longer when compared to a minimally invasive spine surgery.

However, on the other hand, the same operative goals can be achieved with a minimally invasive spine surgery. The surgical incision is smaller when compared to open spine surgery. There is less trauma to the body, less scarring, less pain after the surgery followed by a shorter recovery after the surgical procedure. So, why not consider minimally invasive spine surgery first?
