Minimally invasive spine surgery is a procedure that aims to restore the stability and pressure on the spinal nerves by removing or reducing the risk of spinal instability. Spinal instability is often caused by herniated discs, scoliosis, bone spurs, spinal tumors, and other spine conditions. Compared to open surgical procedures on the spine, minimally invasive surgery can be performed relatively quickly, which reduces risk, and the amount of trauma to surrounding muscle and soft tissue area, as well as reduce recovery time. Other benefits include reduced risk of infection, less blood loss, less reliance on pain medication following surgery and better cosmetic results for patients because of smaller incisions.

“The entire experience from scheduling an appointment to walking out the door was fantastic. You really get the sense that this is a world class practice. They made me feel welcomed and did not rush through the visit. He, and his PA, answered all my questions and ensured I understood the prognosis and all possible directions of care moving forward. I’m very happy we came across SPS.”

Treatment Plans

Common Types of Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures:


The concept of a discectomy is to remove the soft tissue that’s inside a spinal disc, which then becomes weakened and protrudes out. This can cause pain and pressure on the nerves passing through the disc. This procedure can be performed using instruments such as an endoscope and a tubular dilator.

Spinal Decompression

This condition, which is known as spinal stenosis, can cause various symptoms, such as muscle weakness and pain. If it’s not treated, it can worsen and affect the function of the nerves. Decompression is a type of surgery that involves removing soft tissues and bones.
