Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Specialists in NJ & FL

Minimally invasive spine surgery encompasses any surgical procedure of the spine that avoids traditional open back incisions in favor of smaller incisions. Unlike traditional open back surgery, which requires larger incisions and cutting through the muscle to reach the affected location of the spine, minimally invasive surgery uses very small incisions and gently move muscles and other anatomy to access the area needed. This technique means less trauma, pain and scarring, which lead to faster healing and recovery.

Am I a Candidate for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Depending on your specific spine condition, minimally invasive spine surgery may be the answer to finding pain relief. A typical candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery is suffering from severe pain on a daily basis and has not found relief in non-surgical treatments. These candidates are generally of healthy weight and good overall health. In some situations, excessive weight and poor overall health can disqualify a patient from candidacy. 

Minimally invasive spine surgery could return you to a pain-free life. See if you qualify for a minimally invasive spine surgery by trying our candidacy checker tool below.
