Minimally invasive or Endoscopic spine surgery (MISS) is sometimes called less invasive spine surgery. In these procedures, doctors use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions. Minimally invasive spine surgery was developed to treat spine problems with less injury to the muscles and other normal structures in the spine. It also helps the surgeon to see only where the problem exists in the spine. Other advantages of MISS include smaller incisions, less bleeding, and shorter stay in the hospital.
Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) uses advanced technology and innovative techniques to treat back pain and neck pain caused by a variety of spinal disorders. Spine surgery is traditionally done as "open surgery," meaning the area being operated on is opened with a long incision to allow the surgeon to view and access the anatomy. In recent years, however, technological advances have allowed more back and neck conditions to be treated with a minimally invasive surgical technique.
Spine surgery is typically recommended only when a period of nonsurgical treatment — such as medications and physical therapy — has not relieved the painful symptoms caused by your back problem. In addition, surgery is only considered if your doctor can pinpoint the exact source of your pain, such as a herniated disk or spinal stenosis. The following conditions can be treated endoscopically:
Degenerative disc disease
It's one of the most rapidly advancing surgical procedures. Through computer-assisted technology and highly specialized tools, minimally invasive surgery is an attractive option for patients who want a quicker recovery after surgery, less post-operative pain, and smaller incisions.
Minimally invasive techniques are beginning to be used for a wider range of spine procedures, and have been used for common procedures like decompression and spinal fusion since the 1990s. The 2 main goals of minimally invasive spine surgery are:
This is used to take pressure off (to decompress) your spinal cord or nerve roots. That pressure can cause pinched nerves and pain. The goal of this procedure is to relieve the pressure and reduce your pain.
Sometimes a mobile segment can be the source of pain or abnormal movement can cause pain. When this happens, a stabilizing surgery may be needed. This is typically a fusion, often done with instrumentation.
