Minimally Invasive Surgery in Santa Monica, CA
Spine Surgeries in Los Angeles
If you’ve been told that you need spine surgery, it is not unusual to have a variety of questions and concerns. These questions may involve wondering about various things such as the technique involved, possible damage or complications, and the recovery time. Fortunately, through advances in medical technology, spine surgery can be done through an approach which causes less destruction to surrounding tissue. This is usually referred to as minimally invasive surgery, and is a much safer approach. At Marina Spine Center, we offer this surgery to our patients.
The possible benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
- Less damage to surrounding tissue
- Little damage to muscles
- Less pain after surgery
- Shortened recovery time
- Better long-term function
The difference in this type of surgery, is it typically involves using an endoscope or a microscope, through a special retractor. This allows access to the spine without much damage to the surrounding muscles and tissue. Doing procedures this way allows patients to resume their lives as quickly as possible.
