Benefits of Minimally
Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is based on innovative techniques, cutting-edge technology, and evidence-based medicine. MISS allows us to deliver better results, faster recoveries, and lower scarring than traditional surgery.

With MISS, surgeons use high-powered microscopes to operate through small incisions, thus minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissue. Our physicians have even helped develop these microscopes. Microsurgical techniques translate to reduced post-operative pain and consistent, lasting relief for spinal disorders as well as chronic neck and back pain.
