Faster Recovery with Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (WATCH)
Minimally invasive surgeries are becoming more common, especially when it comes to the spine. This technique allows doctors to provide their patients with the same positive outcome as traditional surgery, but at a much faster pace, with less disruption to the soft tissues around the spine. Patients will also experience a shorter time in surgery and a shortened recovery time.
Dr. Barrett Woods, an orthopaedic surgeon with Rothman Orthopaedics in Egg Harbor Township, discusses the multiple benefits of minimally invasive surgery including early mobilization, less post-surgery pain, and faster recovery. When it comes to minimally invasive spine surgery, patients are getting amazing results.
