Minimally Invasive vs. Open Spine Surgery
Please join us for a lunch and lecture by Dr. Theofilos to learn about the many significant differences between minimally invasive spine surgery vs. open spine surgery.
Minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgeries are just that—minimally invasive. Those who elect to have MIS surgery typically return to work quicker, their risk of infections and complications are significantly lower, and the procedure itself is economically more cost effective. Because the procedure does not require a large incision (incisions are usually less than an inch or two), surgeons can avoid damaging the surrounding muscles, which again, results in less pain post-op and a quicker recovery.
Understanding the difference between the two types is crucial before making the decision to have spine surgery.
