What are Minimally Invasive Surgeries or MIS?

Minimally invasive spinal surgeries are generally performed to stabilize and immobilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints, thereby reducing the pressure being applied on the spinal nerves to reduce patient’s pain in debilitating conditions such as spinal instability, bone spurs, herniated discs, scoliosis or spinal tumors.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgeries?

  • Procedure is much faster, safer and reduces the healing time of the patient
  • A small incision is required, which causes very little trauma to the hard and soft tissues surrounding the incision
  • There is very little bleeding
  • Almost no cosmetic injury
  • Does not cause muscle injuries
  • Low chances of infection
  • Faster recovery
  • Less rehabilitation time

Conditions requiring Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spinal Surgeries

Minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgeries are used to treat the following diseases:-

  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal instability including spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal tumors
  • Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal infections
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis

Common MIS Endoscopic Spinal Surgery Treatment Application

Some of the most common applications of the procedure are:-

  • Discectomy: In case of spinal hernia, instead of a long complicated extensive surgery, treatment can be easily done by trimming or removing the herniated disc by using tubular dilators along with a microscope or dilators. This also protects the spinal discs from rupturing.
  • Spinal Decompression: This is done to correct spinal stenosis to reduce pain, numbness and muscle weakness. It can be done minimally invasively using tubular dilators and an endoscope or microscope or by performing a laminectomy or foraminotomy.
  • Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF): This is performed in patients suffering from refractory mechanical low back and radicular pain associated with spondylolisthesis, degenerative disc disease and recurrent disc herniation by placing screws and rods through the front.
