The essence of minimally invasive spine surgery is the performance of spine surgery through an approach that causes as little destruction to surrounding tissues as possible. In general, this involves the use of a microscope or endoscope through a special retractor that allows access to the spine with little damage to the muscles. The benefit to this approach is less damage to the muscles which allows faster, less painful recovery and potentially better long term function of the muscles.

Our doctors use the latest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques to get athletes back on the field and patients back to their lives as soon as possible.
