Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery
What is Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery?
Any method of accessing the spinal region necessitates removing muscle tissue due to the location of the spinal nerves, vertebrae, and discs, which are all located deep inside the body. A tiny incision or incisions are typically used to guide equipment and/or microscopic video cameras through to assist this.
When to go for surgery
The doctor will be able to determine if surgery is required to treat a spinal issue. When non-surgical therapies fail to improve symptoms for a period of three months or longer, patients with a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis may be treated with a minimally invasive technique. Elderly people are frequently suitable candidates for surgery.
In order to reach the compressed nerve, the surgeon makes an incision (cut) over the afflicted area of the spine all the way down to the lamina (the bony arch of your vertebra). When the spinal cord is brought back toward the centre of the spinal column, a portion of the bone or ligament pressing on the nerve will be cut away.
Post Surgery Care
Physiotherapy is frequently advised to increase your back muscles' strength, range of motion, and flexibility. It aids in the quicker healing of the tissues in the operated-on region. Sometimes it's advised to have inpatient physical therapy for 1 to 5 days after surgery.
