This minimally invasive technique is used in place of a traditional lumbar spinal fusion. Utilizing a small incision via the patient's side, x-ray, and nerve monitoring, a cage is placed to correct spinal deformities. Stabilizing with this technique provides relief by removing pressure from the affected nerves, while causing minimal muscle trauma.
Patient can immediately reenter their normal life.
No external brace needed! Restrictions on some twisting, bending, and heavy lifting for up to 6 weeks. Walking and isometric core exercises are encouraged to begin right away to aid in retraining the neuromuscular system.
