Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery

What is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Spine Institute Northwest performs minimally invasive endoscopically assisted spine surgeries, which benefits patients in several important ways:

  • Fast Recovery
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Small incision
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Same-day, outpatient procedure
  • Most procedures do not require general anesthesia

What are the Types of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Spine Institute Northwest Specializes in the following types of endoscopic surgery

ENDOSCOPICALLY ASSISTED SPINAL DECOMPRESSION


Endoscopically assisted spinal decompression surgery aims to treat stenosis of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine regions that has been identified to cause numbness, weakness or pain in the arms or legs.

LUMBAR INTERBODY FUSION AND FACET FIXATION

Facet joints of the spine and intervertebral discs can become worn, causing low back pain, numbness, and weakness. Our surgeons perform minimally invasive endoscopic facet fixation and interbody fusion by joining facet joints together to prevent constant irritation caused by movement of these joints and, if needed, insert interbody implant to re-expand the disc space, allowing space for spinal cord and nerves.

ENDOSCOPIC ASSISTED NERVE EXCISION


Endoscopically assisted nerve excision is done to target cervical, thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions of spine caused by damaged or worn facet joints. This minimally invasive surgical technique is performed to “interrupt” pain signals of the nerve without impacting any motor functions.
