Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery – MISS Treatment in India

starting from

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, also known as MISS, modern technology advanced imaging techniques and special medical equipment to reduce tissue trauma, bleeding, radiation exposure, hospital stays and recovery by minimizing the size of the incision. Modern endoscopic procedures can be done through a 2 to 5 mm skin opening, with no internal cutting (truly minimally invasive). By contrast, procedures done with a microscope require skin openings of approximately one inch, or more. Since the one inch cut goes all the way down, it can only be called relatively MISS.

MISS is used to treat a number of spinal conditions such as degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, fractures, tumors, infections, instability, and deformity. It also makes spine surgery possible for patients who were previously considered too high-risk for traditional surgery due to previous medical history or the complexity of the condition.

How It Works

There are many spinal procedures that make use of Minimally Invasive Techniques. They can involve cutting away tissue (discectomy), fixing adjacent vertebrae to one another (spinal fusion), and replacing bone or other tissue. The name of the procedure often includes the region of the spine that is operated on, including cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine. These procedures include:
-Anterior cervical discectomy
-Artificial disc replacement or total disc replacement
-Epidural lysis of adhesions, also known as percutaneous adhesiolysis or the Racz procedure
-OLLIF Oblique lateral lumbar inter body fusion
-Percutaneous vertebroplasty, a.k.a. Kyphoplasty
-Endoscopic Discectomy

Claims are made that the larger style of MISS has better outcomes than open surgery with respect to fewer complications and shorter hospital stays.
