Your Surgeon Might Not Perform Minimally Invasive Surgery

Not all spinal surgeons practice minimally invasive spine surgery and so are not in a position to recommend these techniques to their patients. This is unfortunate because patients don’t benefit from the many advantages of minimally invasive techniques, including reduced recovery time, less pain, less tissue damage, and more.

So why doesn’t everyone perform surgery using minimally invasive techniques? The truth is, many surgeons have not adopted these this skill set simply because they did not learn them in their residency. Mastery of minimally invasive surgical techniques requires years of study and dedication.
