Should you consider minimally invasive spine surgery?
If you’ve been recommended to undergo spine surgery for your condition after exhausting conservative treatments, you should begin to research all of the surgical options available to you.
In addition to traditional open spine procedures, advances in medical technology and surgical technique have allowed for the development of minimally invasive spine surgery. Of the two options, minimally invasive procedures, such as those performed at Laser Spine Institute, offer patients many advantages and benefits.
