Spondylolisthesis — minimally invasive surgery options for treatment

If you have been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis and have been recommended to seek surgical treatment for your condition, you should research all the surgical options available to you before deciding on the best option for your needs. Most people think traditional open back fusion is the only option for spine surgery to treat spondylolisthesis. However, there is a safer and effective alternative available to you, in the form of Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive spine surgery.^

At Laser Spine Institute, we encourage you to reach out and ask questions about the treatment options available to you. Every patient is entitled to the information and education needed to make an informed decision about the right treatment method for your needs. As you research the surgical options available to you, please feel free to contact our dedicated team. We are here to guide you to the best possible treatment option for your spondylolisthesis.

Minimally invasive stabilization surgery for spondylolisthesis

At Laser Spine Institute, our minimally invasive spine surgery is often clinically appropriate over open neck or back surgery.^ While open spine surgery carries a number of risks and does not always produce a positive surgical outcome, our minimally invasive stabilization surgery provides a lower risk of complication compared to traditional procedures.^

During our minimally invasive spondylolisthesis surgery, one of our board-certified surgeons+ will make a small incision in the neck or back, depending on the location of the condition. All surrounding muscles and tissues will be spared during the procedure, which means you will have a shorter recovery time^ than patients who undergo traditional open back surgery.

Once the spine is accessed, the impacted nerve in the spinal cord will be decompressed. An implant will be inserted at the location of the degenerative disc or joint to stabilize the surrounding vertebrae. With a patient satisfaction score of 98, our placement as the nation’s leader in minimally invasive spine surgery^ is no surprise.

Since our minimally invasive surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, our patients are able to be up and walking within a few hours of surgery.^ We’ve helped more than 75,000 people find relief from chronic neck and back pain, and we are confident we can help you on your road to recovery.
