Minimally Invasive Lumbar Fusion
Laser Spine Surgery in Houston, TX
Lumbar spinal fusion surgery is a procedure used to treat a variety of conditions in the lower back. Spinal fusion is used for medical conditions including:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Break (fracture) of your spinal column
- Infection of your spinal column
- Tumor in your spinal column
A minimally invasive spinal fusion uses a smaller incision than traditional spinal fusion surgery. A minimally invasive incision is approximately a 1-inch incision made on one side of the middle of the back vs a 5-6-inch incision with traditional surgery.
Because minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), does not involve a long incision, it avoids significant damage to the muscles that surround the spine and results in less pain after surgery as well as a faster recovery.
