New advances in technology have provided a less invasive option than traditional surgery for certain patients. Minimally invasive fusion surgery, or MIS fusion, has been shown to be very successful in improving a patient’s quality of life by effectively treating debilitating back and leg pain.

Contact our orthopaedic surgeons in Illinois to see if minimally invasive outpatient spine surgery is the better option for you over traditional spinal fusion.


What is Minimally Invasive Fusion Surgery?

MIS fusion involves the use of smaller implants that require smaller incisions than those required for traditional spinal fusion procedures. This minimizes muscle tissue damage, reduces scarring and limits blood loss.

MIS fusion offers patients a less painful and quicker recovery, enabling them to return to work and other activities sooner.
