Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery NYC is an option for those requiring surgical procedures for treating different spinal disorders such as spinal herniated disc and spinal stenosis. Some time back, spinal procedures were carried out only as open surgeries and it resulted in long incisions so that the surgeons can see a larger area of the patient’s spinal anatomy. With advancements in carrying out surgical procedures, now these surgeries are performed by making tiny incisions. Minimally invasive surgeries offer its patients the benefits of potential complications and from the risk of developing any problems. The preoperative imaging commonly called as CT scan, MRI helps surgeons to plan the surgery accurately. Depending on the diagnosis and the area of the spine that requires surgical intervention, minimally invasive surgery can help in carrying out the procedure from anterior (front), posterior (rear) or lateral (side) of the body. Fluoroscopy is also brought to use by the surgeon for visualizing the area where the procedure is to be performed, guiding the instruments and to implant any inter-body devices. When the surgery is complete, postoperative imaging is used for confirming the placement of screws, plates, rods or other devices which can be used for stabilizing the spine.
