Minimally Invasive Back Surgery


    Back surgery is typically recommended only when non-surgical alternatives have not had a desired effect for a patient. Minimally invasive surgery makes use of specialized instruments to grant surgeons access to the spine through a series of much smaller incisions, reducing the risk for infection as well as post-operative recovery time.
