Minimally invasive stabilization surgery (MISS) uses advanced technology and innovative techniques to treat back pain and neck pain caused by a variety of spinal disorders. Minimally invasive stabilization minimizes soft tissue damage. Minimally invasive stabilization may be a less risky, less invasive option compared to traditional open spine surgery.
Conditions to Treat with M.I.S.S.:
- Spinal Stenosis
- Numbness and tingling — If a nerve is compressed in the upper part of your spine, you may experience numbness or tingling in your arm or hand. In very severe cases, you might lose control of your bladder and/or bowel movements. See your doctor immediately if you experience any bladder or bowel complications.
- Muscle weakness — You may experience muscle weakness in your arm or hand as a result of your nerve being severely compressed.
- Numbness and tingling — Having a compressed nerve in your lower back can result in numbness and tingling in your buttock and down your leg. Severe cases can cause numbness and tingling to occur in the foot, as well.
- Pain and cramping — Standing for long period of time may cause pain and cramping in the lower back and legs.
