Spinal Stenosis with Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery, in treating Spinal Stenosis offers many advantages including
very small scaring, minimum muscle related injuries and a shorter hospital stay. Usually
only a couple of days versus 5 or more.

Patients will also experience reduced postoperative pain, a shorter recovery period and
the ability to return to work and regular daily activities much sooner. sometimes as little
as 1 to 2 weeks.

Spinal Stenosis occurs as a result of natural aging and normal wear on the spine.
Symptoms can include persistent lower back pain as well as numbness and weakness
in the buttocks and legs that improve with lying down or bending forward.

If you are over the age of 50 and experiencing these symptoms, Spinal Stenosis is most
likely the cause.

Before considering surgical options, patients should always try more conservative
treatments such as weight loss, massage therapy, physical therapy , epidural steroid
injections and possibly other pain management techniques.

Unfortunately, these conservative treatments only help over a short time. Many back
problems will worsen as the symptoms are more easily treated then the underlying
cause. If these treatments are not relieving back pain, then it may be time to consider
surgical options.

With Modern Medicine progressing, a spinal fusion is no longer the only surgical option.
There are several surgeries classified as “Minimally invasive” Be sure to choose a
physician that can explain and help you understand the differences so the right decision
can be made for your heath.
