Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, or MIS, is also referred to as minimal access spine surgery, or even laser spine surgery. It is a surgical procedure performed with specialized instruments through one or more small incisions. Conventional surgery uses long incisions through the skin, tissue and muscle, which entails longer patient recovery time and an increased risk of infection at the surgical site.
There are many types of surgery that are done using minimally invasive technology. Some of those include cervical and lumbar herniated discs, degenerative scoliosis, cervical and lumbar spinal stenosis, spondyolistheses, spinal fractures and fusions.
Laser Spine Surgery uses PCA’s, or Patient Controlled Analgesic machines, that deliver pain medication using specific parameters set forth by your physician. However, patients can control the administration of medication as individually needed.
Signs and symptoms of infection include fever, redness and tenderness at the surgical site, and a discolored foul smelling drainage at the site. Contact your physician immediately if you suspect you may have an infection.
