Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Overview

Minimally invasive surgery refers to a surgical procedure done through small incision(s) affecting only the damaged part instead of one large opening. This is a technologically advanced method of achieving better results as compared to open surgical procedures. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) is a type of surgery on the bones of your spine (backbone). This type of surgery uses smaller incisions than a traditional open surgery which often causes less harm to nearby muscles and other tissues. Whereas, in an open surgery, an incision that is 5 to 6 inches long is made, then muscles are separated in order to see the spine. Major disadvantage of open surgery is that it may lead to severe muscle injury and can be traumatic.

Minimally invasive spine surgery also helps the surgeon to see only the location where the problem exists in the spine. Generally, the goal of minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) surgery in conditions such as a spinal instability, bone spurs, herniated discs, scoliosis or spinal tumours. Minimally invasive technique is used in various types of spine surgery like Lumbar Discectomy, Laminectomy, and Spinal Fusion.

PREPARING FOR THE SURGERY

Spine surgery is recommended when your back or neck pain is causing major problem for you to perform daily activities and is not being improved through medication or physiotherapy. Due to advanced benefits of minimally invasive technique, doctor may advise you to undergo minimally invasive spine surgery. Before the surgery, you will need to undergo few imaging tests like X-ray and MRI, a detailed physical examination of your health status will be done. All this will help your surgeon to get a thorough idea about your spinal problems and decide what part of your spine needs to be operated. Also you may be asked to discontinue using any medication or supplements such as blood thinners, to avoid any complications post-surgery.

ON THE DAY OF SURGERY

In the operation theatre, you will be administered with spinal anaesthesia along with sedatives which will make the spinal area numb but you will be awake. In some case MISS can also performed under general anaesthesia which will make you sleep during the surgery.

Commonly, during any type of Minimally Invasive Spinal surgery, a small incision is made on your back in the area that needs to be operated. A tube like structure called tubular retractor is inserted through the skin and soft tissues down to the spinal column which holds the muscle open, thus preventing muscle cutting, and it is kept in place throughout the procedure. Surgeon will then insert small instruments through this retractor. This includes a tiny camera and a light and the needed repair is done to the spine. When the repairs are done, the surgical instruments and retractor are then removed. The incision is closed with stitches or staples and a small bandage is put on the wound.

POST-SURGERY

After the surgery you will be kept under observation in a recovery room and once your vital signs are normal and you are alert you will be shifted to a normal hospital room. You may require 1-2 days’ hospitalization or in some cases you may be discharged the same day, depending on the type of surgery. Because minimally invasive techniques do not disrupt muscles and soft tissues, it is believed that postoperative pain is less than pain after traditional open procedures. Although, you may experience mild pain post-surgery which can be managed by pain relieving medicines. You will be given antibiotics to prevent any infection.

RECOVERY PROCESS

Your recovery time will vary depending on the type of surgery you had and your general health. You may be able to go back to normal activities in a few weeks. At the time of discharge, you will be instructed about post-operative care and physical exercises. Physiotherapy will help you regain muscle strength and recover faster. Specific exercises will help you become strong enough to return to work and daily activities. You may need to wear a brace around your back for comfort purpose. Make sure to follow all the post-operative instructions about treatment and follow-up appointments.
