Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Why it's better ?
Unlike traditional spinal surgery ( where the surgeon makes a long 5-6 inch incision, and with a retractor pulls the back muscles and tissues sideways to expose a large segment of spinal cord), MISS technique minimizes the requirement to cut and expose.
Traditional invasive spine surgeries often leads to damage to the soft tissues and back muscles surrounding spinal cord, due to excessive wear and tear during the operation. It may even cause greater pain, blood loss and infections.
Now, MISS was invented to perform surgeries with least amount of tissue damage.
Surgeon enters the instrument only through the actual area of damage. So, MISS offers least complications, minimum blood loss and shorter stay in the hospital.
At JPRC medical centres, our highly qualified surgeons perform MISS with best in state technology to assure complete healing.
Common types :
MIS lumber diskectomy (for hernia) , MIS lumber fusion etc.
Most common procedure -
During this surgery, health specialist makes a small incision in the patients back and then inserts a device named tubular retractor which creates a tunnel to open the problem causing area. The surrounding muscles are gently moved by the tool so that the surgeon can easily operate the spine.
Retractor acts as the tunnel for the entire surgical process, small instruments are passed through it's canal and broken pieces of bone, spinal cord and tissue are also removed through it.
Our professionals use fluoroscope, special microscope and real time x-ray systems for the surgery. Nowadays, endoscope is also used if required.
Normally, after a MIS surgery, patients can go home on that same day, or sometimes after 1-2 days. It depends on individual medical condition .
To help you regain your strength and fitness quickly, our doctors may recommend physical therapy. Besides, regular mild exercises ( as per your doctor) will help you to recover fast and get back to the normal life.
But in fusion procedures, bones may take 2-3 months to fuse properly. You must follow your doctor's advice to sit, move, walk and maintain the proper allignment of the spinal column.
But don't worry, our highly experienced doctors at JPRC medical centres will check you regularly after surgery to make sure that you're recovering quickly and properly.
