Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Q&A

What is minimally invasive spine surgery?

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) uses small incisions and special tools to treat conditions that affect the spine. Unlike traditional open spine surgery, MISS causes less trauma to the body, resulting in less post-surgical pain and a shorter recovery.

The team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics wants nothing more than to provide you with the best options to help you get relief from your pain. They offer the most innovative minimally invasive spine surgeries available. 

What are some types of minimally invasive spine surgery?

There are many types of MISS surgery. The team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics performs:

Endoscopic spine surgery (ESS)

ESS is a minimally invasive spine surgery that uses tiny incisions, small tubular systems, and an endoscope (surgical camera) to perform various procedures on the spine, such as discectomy (removal of an intervertebral disc), spinal decompression, or spinal fusion.


Neurectomy is a surgical procedure that severs a nerve, stopping the transmission of pain signals.

Minuteman® procedure

The Minuteman procedure is a minimally invasive spinal fusion procedure the team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics may use to treat lumbar spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease (DDD), spondylolisthesis, trauma, or a tumor.

Intracept® Procedure

The Intracept Procedure is a basivertebral nerve ablation surgery that relieves chronic lower back pain.

Spinal cord stimulator implantation

A spinal cord stimulator is a device that delivers mild electrical impulses to the nerves in the spine to block the pain signal.

Percutaneous discectomy

A percutaneous discectomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery for the removal of herniated discs that cause pain.

Percutaneous balloon augmented vertebroplasty

The percutaneous balloon augmented vertebroplasty stabilizes spinal compression fractures in the lumbar and thoracic vertebral bodies.

Am I a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery?

Schedule a consultation at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics to see if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery. The team takes a holistic approach to care and may recommend non-surgical interventions that support your body’s natural healing process, such as orthobiologics or prolotherapy, before recommending surgery.

However, when medical treatments fail to relieve your spine pain, then the team might consider you a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery, depending on the cause.
