Minimally invasive surgery is a relatively new treatment option for patients suffering from spinal disorders. The idea behind this type of treatment is to take care of a spinal problem while minimizing the incision and also decreasing the amount of trauma to the tissues around the spine. This type of surgery has sometimes been called “Keyhole” surgery and even “Laser” surgery. While the idea of laser surgery has become popular it is important to note lasers are rarely used around the nerves because of the heat that they generate. Lasers can be mounted on x-rays to help guide surgeons and can be useful for navigation purposes.

Minimally invasive surgery typically will involve some sort of magnification such as microscope-guided, or endoscopically guided approaches to the spine and joints. Usually, if surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques, which is preferable, there is a shorter recovery time for patients. These types of surgeries can often be performed in an outpatient setting thereby avoiding the need for extended hospitalization. Talk with your doctor to see if your condition could be treated with minimally invasive techniques.
