Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a highly advanced mode of surgery wherein the surgery is performed using the key-hole method. The size of the incisions will be only approximately18mm in size. Minimally invasive spine surgery can be used to treat several complex spinal conditions. The advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery are minimal incisions, lesser blood loss, minimal muscle damage, lesser pain, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery. The Centre for Spine Care at Aster Medcity offers safe, high-precision minimally invasive spine surgery with the help of intra-operative technology including neuro-navigation and 3D C arm.
