Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Contrary to conventional open spine surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery offers several benefits, which include less post-operative pain, less soft muscle and tissue damage, and reduced risk of infection. When you undergo laser spine surgery for back treatment in a NJ facility like Executive Spine Surgery, you’ll experience faster recovery times with fewer complications. We make this form of minimally invasive surgery possible by removing the need to make multiple large incisions or to move and manipulate the surrounding tissues.
