Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion Orange County
Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion is a less invasive spine surgical technique that uses specialized instruments through small incisions to access the spine. It minimizes damage and trauma to muscles and tissues surrounding the spine, resulting in less post-operative pain and faster recovery. Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion corrects problems with the vertebrae, the small bones of the spine. The procedure involves mending and fusing together of painful vertebrae, allowing them to heal into a single, solid bone. Advancements in technology are largely responsible for the advent of Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion technique. With innovative instruments such as optics, cameras and lighting systems, Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion can be performed in less time, with less tissue damage, and less post-operative pain compared to traditional open spinal fusion surgery.
