What Are Minimally Invasive Approaches To Spine
2
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery by definition
    are techniques that utilize small skin incisions,
    using specialized instruments to work around the
    spine and achieve the same surgical goals that
    traditional open surgery would. They aim at
    minimising the collateral damage.
  • Traditional spine surgery have been open, in
    which the area being operated is opened with a
    long incision allowing the surgeon to view and
    access the surgical site. Technological
    advancement and surgeon expertise have made
    possible for these procedures to be much less
    invasive, or as they are called minimally
    invasive procedures. These are still in
    development world over.

  • Minimally invasive spine surgeries are one of the
    major development in spine treatment today. These
    procedures require an extensive training by the
    surgeon and staff. They also call for a special
    skill set and advanced technical equipment to be
    done successfully.
  • Minimally invasive approaches have proved to be a
    boon for patients, as they allow much complicated
    surgeries to be done with much less damage. Some
    advantages are
  • Less infection rates
  • Faster recovery
  • Less collateral damage
  • Less painful
  • Less bleeding
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less scarring

  • Minimally invasive spine procedures make use of
    specialised retractors and working instruments
    for decompression of neural structures and
    instrumentation of the spine. The surgeon also
    uses a microscope to view important structures of
    spine.
  • Two common minimally invasive procedures are
  • Discectomy A discectomy is the surgical removal
    of material that is pressing a nerve or spinal
    cord due to herniated or slipped disk. Surgeons
    use retractors and a microscope to remove the
    bulging disk. Discectomy is completed using
    general anesthesia.
  • Spinal fusion Spinal fusion is performed to
    permanently join two or more motion segments in
    the spine. A graft / cage can be placed across
    the anterior inter body column and pedicle screws
    in addition or in isolation to fuse the two bones
    together and avoid movement between them.
