Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgery

This is spinal surgery that is done with smaller incisions, less blood loss, less operative time and less pain to the patient than a standard open operation.

 

We offer the very latest expertise and options for Minimally Invasive Surgery, as well as the experience to know when more invasive and extensive procedures are needed. With minimally invasive surgery, our patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort.
