Having back surgery doesn’t necessarily mean setting aside months of your life to recover.
Whenever possible, UHealth spine surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques to minimize your pain, and reduce hospital stay and recovery time. When considering spine surgery, your surgeon will explain the pros and cons of minimally-invasive surgery and determine if you are candidate.
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is less painful and offers you a quicker healing time by causing less damage to surrounding tissues. It also means you have a less noticeable scar than you would get from a traditional surgery. In fact, it is sometimes as small as two centimeters.
Since UHealth offers the greatest variety of MIS procedures in Florida, we are more than likely to have the right minimally invasive alternative that works for your needs.
Our surgeons have the most comprehensive array of highly-specialized, innovative technology and instruments for MIS procedures in the state, including:
- Spinal endoscope for reducing incision size
- Tubular dilator retractor systems to minimize tissue destruction
- High resolution microscopes to improve visualization
- O-arm® for intraoperative CT scanning
- Mazor Renaissance™ Spine Robot to increase surgical precision
- Advanced practice providers
