It’s no wonder with the advanced research in technology that medical professionals have developed a minimally invasive approach to surgery. This procedure has made sports medicine, joint replacements, and other arthroscopic repairs that much safer and less invasive than that of the traditional approaches.

Why is minimally invasive better?
In a world of medical jargon where things may not make sense, this is exactly how it sounds. Less is more, less is better- for some. Traditional surgery leaves patients with larger scars which means longer recovery time due to trauma being caused to the surrounding tissues within the incision. With a minimally invasive technique, our surgeons are able to make a targeted incision and address only that area, and in regards to a minimally invasive spine surgery, this is a game changer. This procedure leads to shorter recovery and less pain overall for the patient.
Is this right for me?
Even though this procedure may seem simpler than that of a traditional approach, non-operative approaches will always be taken first before proceeding with surgery. Our team of Atlanta orthopedic doctors specialize in treating in a variety of ways.
