Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeon

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

(MIS) simply describes our innovative surgical techniques that minimize tissue trauma during a spinal surgery. Using these minimally invasive techniques allows us to provide much shorter hospital stays, and faster, less painful recovery periods for our patients. While not all patients are candidates for minimally invasive techniques, each patient is evaluated in order to determine the most effective treatment for them as an individual.

Motion Preservation Spine Surgery Northern VA

Motion Preservation Spine Surgery

Motion Preservation Spine Surgery is a surgical technique that allows patients to avoid spinal fusions. In its simplest form, MPSS includes micro decompression techniques that maximize the preservation of spinal structures compared with traditional open surgeries. Perhaps the biggest advantage of MPSS is that patients who undergo the procedure typically have surgeries that take a fraction of the time and experience a much faster recovery.

In fact, using a laser beam around neural structures can actually be dangerous.
