MIS (Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery) is a type of minimally invasive spine surgery.
Not every ailment can be treated with MISS, but for those that can, it can drastically lower the patient's risk and recovery time. Herniated discs, infection in the spine, narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis), spinal abnormalities such as scoliosis, and removal of a tumor in the spine are some of the disorders that may be candidates for MIS. Instability of the spine Spondylolysis is a defect in a section of the lower vertebrae that results in a fractured vertebra.
MISS makes far smaller incisions, which reduces stress to adjacent muscles and tissues. To provide room for the surgeon to work, a tube-shaped tool gently pulls tissues aside. MISS can reduce the risk of infection, bleeding, and scarring, as well as shorten hospital stays and improve patient functional capability. Surgical robotics, as well as real-time microscopic imaging, may be used. Dr. Henkin is a certified Mazor X Robotic System operator as well as a Computer Image Guidance Technologies expert.
