The objective of minimally invasive spine surgery is to stabilize the spine and relieve pressure in the area due to instability, herniated discs, spinal tumors and other issues. A terrific alternative to open spine surgery for some patients, it’s associated with a number of benefits, including a faster recovery period and less physical trauma.
Are You A Candidate For Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?
A doctor will be able to confirm whether or not you’re an ideal candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery. These procedures won’t be appropriate for every patient, and in some cases the traditional, open approach will be safer and more effective.
However, if you’ve exhausted all conservative measures and your pain isn’t improving, we recommend looking into minimally invasive spine surgery so you have a well-rounded view of your options. During your initial consultation at his NJ office, Dr. Rovner will discuss the risks and benefits of this approach with you, and help you determine if it’s in your best interest.
