Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgery

in Spine Health Services

Last updated 6 years ago

MISS is the acronym for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery. It has changed how neurosurgeons operate today. MISS techniques reduce the need for large incisions, muscle cutting, and a long period of recovery. Instead, your neurosurgeon uses highly refined instruments, tools, devices, and imaging technology to access your spine through skin punctures or tiny incisions less than one-inch long!

Minimally-invasive spine surgery procedures performed at KBNI include:

  • Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
  • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion
  • Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion
  • Direct Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion
