Minimally Invasive Surgery

Such back pain treatment is faster and safer than open spine surgery and has a shorter recovery time. Among all surgical methods for treating back diseases, it has such advantages as less bleeding during surgery, a lower chance of muscle damage because there is no need to cut them during surgery. Furthermore, rehabilitation and recovery process does not take much time, and also the chances of infection and postoperative back pain are quite low.

Open back surgeries are quite risky and have many more consequences than mini-invasive treatment. The main difficulty of most open operations with resection of bone structures is that after the removal of parts of the vertebrae, the spinal column is not stable anymore: the overlying vertebrae no longer have anything to rely on. To correct the situation, transpedicular fixators are placed – from 4 to 6 screws are tightened to support the spine in the correct position.
Full recovery after procedures of this kind takes 4-6 months, the patient cannot sit for a long time and can hardly move, needs rehabilitation with the help of physiotherapy, massage and medicaments.

Back Success Stories
When Emma and her husband experienced back injuries, they weren’t sure what to do. “I had two falls, and both times, the pain was so bad,” said Linda. “I was all bent over and couldn’t walk. I could hardly put one foot in front of the other.”
When I first started coming here, it was almost like a last resort. I had talked to so many different doctors about the back pain that I’d been having; I couldn’t really stand up straight, couldn’t do a lot of moving, and was told all I could do is cortisone shots. And I did not want to do that, so I came here to check out meeting with a chiropractor. And it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
