Advances in spine surgery make it possible to undergo surgery on an outpatient basis, rather than requiring several days in the hospital. Minimally invasive spine surgery offers many advantages over traditional open surgery, which requires accessing the spine by cutting through muscles.
Minimally invasive, same-day spine surgery
Outpatient spine surgery is performed in a hygienic medical environment, with smaller incisions. It involves the use of specialized technology, imaging, and surgical instruments. The area to be accessed for treatment is visualized in real time on monitors, allowing the surgeon to guide the instruments with precision.
