  2. 2. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in India Minimally invasive Spine Surgery is performed through small incisions, with the help of endoscopic instruments and techniques that are used to have a clear view of the internal organs of the body. One or more minor incisions, generally less than half an inch are made, through which specially designed instruments and excellent video transmitting machines are inserted. The muscles of the back are moved from their spinal connections to make space for the surgeon to place the rods, screws, bone grafts, etc as required by the surgery.

  3. 3. What are the benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery? • Lesser risk of post-surgery complications and infection • Shorter, more comfortable post-operative recovery • Better clinical outcomes i.e an enhanced opportunity to regain physical function. • Less blood loss during surgery • Reduced risk of infection
  4. 4. Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures • Microsurgical Discectomy Microsurgical Discectomy is a procedure performed by utilizing a tubular device inserted through a very small incision. Muscles are moved aside to see the vertebrae. The herniated portion of the disc is removed to allow room for the nerve to resume its normal position. There is less damage to nearby parts of the spine. Patients tend to recover faster. This is usually done using a microscope for visualizing. • Endoscopic Discectomy Many surgical procedures have been revolutionized by the use of special TV cameras. The procedure is still the same, but even smaller incisions (1/4 inch) are made to insert a special magnified TV camera into the spinal canal so that the surgeon can actually see the disc material. Through these tiny incisions, the camera and several other surgical instruments are inserted. Rather than looking through a microscope, the doctor watches the TV screen while working with specially designed instruments to remove the disc material.
  5. 5. • Transforaminal Interbody Lumbar Fusion Transforaminal Lumbar Fusion (TLIF) is a surgical technique that is performed from a posterior approach to stabilize the spinal vertebrae and disc between. By going through the transforaminal direction there is less bone removed so thus less disturbance to the site. By fusing the vertebrae to eliminate any movement between the bones, the spine is stabilized and a reduction of pain and nerve irritation is accomplished. Surgical hardware (screws and rods) can be applied to help enhance the fusion. Bone graft, along with an interbody spacer will be inserted into the disc space helping to restore normal height and opening up the nerve foramina to take pressure off the nerve roots. • Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) is a surgical technique for placing bone graft between adjacent vertebrae (interbody). Using various instruments, the disc is removed through the right and left sides of the spinal canal and the intervertebral space, which has been cleared, is then packed with bone graft and a bone block or cage implant. Instrumentation, such as pedicle screws, are used to provide support for the fused vertebrae. Additional bone graft may be placed to ensure a solid fusion.
  6. 6. • Kyphoplasty Kyphoplasty is a procedure used to restore the strength and height of a collapsed or fractured vertebra by infusing bone cement in the affected vertebra. It is mainly indicated in elderly patients suffering from weak and brittle bones due to osteoporosis. • Nucleoplasty or Percutaneous Discectomy Nucleoplasty or Percutaneous Discectomy is a procedure utilized for the treatment of chronic back pain caused by a contained herniated disc. This minimally invasive procedure uses a needle that is placed into the center of the disc where a series of channels are created to remove tissue from the nucleus. Tissue removal from the nucleus acts to decompress the disc and relieve the pressure exerted by the disc on the nearby nerve root.
