If you’re having back problems, minimally invasive spine surgery could bring you the relief you need. Taking a minimally invasive approach to spine surgery rather than a traditional, open surgical style has many benefits for patients. Here are a few of the reasons why you should ask your spine surgeon if minimally invasive surgery is right for you.
Faster healing time is one of the biggest advantages of minimally invasive surgery. Open spine surgery almost always involves lengthy recoveries that can last for months, while recovery from minimally invasive surgery happens in a fraction of the time. Additionally, since the incisions are so much smaller, there is less blood loss and a lower risk of infection. A minimally invasive procedure also means a shorter hospital stay and less post-procedure pain.
