Why Preferred For Your Spine Surgery?
At Preferred Surgicenter we believe in minimalist interventions and fast recovery. We stay up to date with the latest procedures and equipment, including Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.
Minimally invasive surgeries are the same procedures that you normally receive, however the surgeon uses specialized equipment such as an endoscope or a microscope to operate through a few small incisions. This means less scarring and a faster recovery for you.
Minimally invasive procedures have many benefits relative to traditional open surgery, including all of the below:
Conditions and Candidacy
Below is a list of conditions that we would treat with minimally invasive spine surgery. For some conditions, such as a herniated disk, you may choose not to have surgery because you don't experience any symptoms.
Minimally invasive spine surgery is less risky and yields a quicker recovery than open surgery. Strong candidates have usually been diagnosed with one of the above conditions and have not experienced improvement after trying more conservative treatments including stretching/physical therapy, chiropractic care, or pain medication for at least six weeks. If pain is interfering with your daily life, take a look at our minimally invasive procedures below or call us now and schedule a consultation. A consultation is not a commitment to surgery, but a commitment to getting the right information and making the best decision you can.
