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 is a common procedure in India which is one of the best techniques to treat spine problems with less injury to the muscles and other normal structures in the spine. It also helps the endoscopic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon to see only where the problem exists in the spine. The best part of MISS or Endoscopic Spine Surgery is smaller incision, less bleeding, and shorter stay in the hospital in India.
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 is opened with a long incision to allow the surgeon to view and access the anatomy. In recent years, however, technological advances in India 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 non-surgical treatment such as medications and physical therapy has not relieved the painful symptoms caused by your back problem. In addition, surgery is best done only if your doctor can pinpoint the exact source of your pain, such as a herniated disk or spinal stenosis. The following conditions can be operated endoscopically by a spine or a neurosurgeon in India:
Degenerative disc disease
Endoscopic Spine Surgery is considered as one of the most rapidly advancing and the best surgical procedures by the neurosurgeon and spine surgeons in India. Through computer-assisted technology and highly specialized tools, minimally invasive surgery is the best 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 by neurosurgeons and spine surgeons in India for a wider range of spine procedures as it gives best results. The 2 main uses of minimally invasive spine surgery or an endoscopic 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.
