Minimally invasive stabilizations performed at Laser Spine Institute’s St. Louis surgery center
In the past, patients dealing with severe symptoms related to a spine condition who had exhausted conservative treatment options would be recommended a highly invasive traditional open spinal fusion procedure. Now, there are a number of new treatments and techniques that successfully treat spine conditions, thanks to modern technologies and other medical advancements. At Laser Spine Institute our surgeons provide outpatient minimally invasive stabilization as a safer and effective alternative to traditional fusion surgery.^
Benefits of minimally invasive stabilization
Minimally invasive stabilization is an outpatient procedure performed through a small incision, sparing your muscles from excessive disruption while still accomplishing the same basic goals as a traditional open spine fusion.
There are many benefits associated with minimally invasive stabilization at Laser Spine Institute. Since our procedures are performed in an outpatient setting, we see a reduction in recovery times,^ along with other great results, including the following:
- Less surgical blood loss
