With minimally invasive techniques, surgeons have improved ways of accessing the spine, resulting in smaller incisions and less trauma to surrounding muscles and tissues, shorter anesthesia and surgery time, shorter hospital stay and quicker return to work. Many of the spinal procedures offered at USMD may be performed either through an open incision or a minimally invasive technique. Your surgeon will recommend the type of surgery that is best suited to your particular condition.
The list of procedures regularly performed at USMD includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Endoscopic Spine Surgery
- Spinal Stenosis Surgery
- Artificial Disc Replacement
- Lumbar Fusion
