Back and neck pain are some of the most common ailments suffered by individuals in America. In the past, patients suffering from chronic back or neck pain due to an underlying spinal condition were forced to undergo invasive, open surgery. Fortunately, advances in the field of medicine have led to the development of minimally invasive spine surgery methods. Continue reading to learn more about the advantages of undergoing minimally invasive spine surgery with your New Jersey spine surgeon.

Smaller Incisions:

Minimally invasive spine surgery uses various surgical techniques in conjunction with specially designed instruments to assist in the visualization of the surgical field. Common instruments include tubular retractors, endoscopic cameras, and ultrasound imaging technology. By using these specially designed instruments, your spine surgeon can create smaller incisions, resulting in smaller scars following the procedure.

Reduces Damage to Surrounding Tissues:

In addition to reducing the size of scars, the small incisions utilized during minimally invasive spine surgery reduces the risk of damage to the adjacent tissues. This not only leads to less blood loss during surgery and decreased post-operative pain but also significantly reduces the mortality rates associated with traditional open surgery methods.

Shorter Recovery Period:

Unlike other spine surgery techniques, minimally invasive spine surgery procedures are often done on an outpatient basis, resulting in shorter recovery periods and less downtime.
