What is minimally invasive spine surgery?
Minimally invasive spine surgery (or MISS) at Preston Surgery Center is recommended for patients who have tried other ways to treat their pain and spinal conditions with mediocre outcomes. Having a minimally invasive spine surgery may seem like a drastic measure to treat pain; however, it can have a profound impact on your health and level of pain. As a renowned orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. Mark Valente performs several types of minimally invasive surgeries in our AAAASF-accredited surgery center, such as:
- Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (or ALIF)
- Endoscopic lumbar fusion
- Direct lateral anterior fusion (or XLIF)
- Discectomies and mini-discectomies
These are all different medical procedures for the spine, but they do have several attributes in common, such as:
- Can be performed in an outpatient setting safely
- Easier recovery than traditional open surgery
- Faster recovery time to get you back to your regular activities
- May reduce the need to cut through soft tissues and muscles to access the spine
- Require smaller incisions made into the skin and less blood loss
Let's discuss your spinal condition in an appointment with Dr. Valente when the time is right for you. Contact our office in Frisco, TX to get the process started for your minimally invasive spinal surgery now.
Minimally Invasive Surgery Reviews
"Great doctor! - I finally opted to have my minimally invasive discectomy after months of PT, shots, chiro which were ineffective in alleviating pain. Had it done this morning and already feel better than I have since late 2018. Nerve pain that radiated into my side and hip is gone. Back is a little bit sore but not as bad as expected and I anticipate a full recovery! Dr. Valente was great. I read a ton of reviews on many back surgeons in the DFW and chose Dr Valente solely in patient reviews and I’m glad I did."- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 18, 2019
