With minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS), we can effectively treat spine disorders without the disruption of spine anatomy normally associated with traditional, open surgery. The technology is so advanced that MIS can be accomplished through one-inch incisions, offering patients greater possibility of reduced blood loss, scar tissue formation and faster return to normal activity.

An endoscope is a thin telescope-like instrument with a lighted tube and camera attachment. We operate by passing instruments through the endoscope to the operative field. The light illuminates the field and the camera transmits images to a monitor in the operating room.

Not every patient is a candidate for MIS, and there are certain disorders that still require open surgery. Treatment options depend largely on our judgment, your diagnosis and overall state of health. Orthopedic spine specialist Dr. Frazier performs both MIS and open surgery and will recommend the treatment best suited for your needs.

Minimally invasive spine surgery is appropriate for the treatment of degenerative disc disease, surgery for herniated disc, vertebral fracture treatment, surgery for spinal stenosis and some spinal deformities. In addition, tumors and infections can be treated with MIS.

Many MIS procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Perhaps the greatest advantage is that procedures once requiring open surgery and a lengthy recovery can now be done with MIS. The outcomes associated with MIS are as good, if not better, than those obtained with open surgery. The advantages of MIS include:

  • Reduced operative time
  • Less soft tissue damage
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Surgical incisions are less painful, heal faster
  • Recovery is faster with less postoperative pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less scarring and more cosmetically pleasing
