Minimally invasive Surgery (MIS) can be done as an alternative to traditional “open” surgery. The benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery include smaller incisions, less muscle or tissue damage, decreased blood loss and a shorter hospital stay following surgery. Minimally Invasive techniques in surgery can be used for both Brain surgeries and Spine surgeries. However, it should be noted that not every surgery and not every patient is an appropriate candidate for MIS. A full evaluation and examination must be done before a physician can determine if this type of surgical technique is recommended for a patient. The team of Central Florida Neurosurgery Institute is committed to offering patients innovative ways to treat their medical conditions and Minimally Invasive Surgery is just one of many options.
