Creating visual access to the areas of the spinal cord affected through injury is typically done with an “open” surgical method that creates an incision into the tissue surrounding the damaged area. With this type of surgery, there are often complications and the recovery time is typically long.
Due to the difficulties related to open surgery, there has been a rush towards the development of minimally invasive techniques. These new procedures are available due to a surge in technological growth advancement. These procedures include Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty, Microscopic Discectomy, Disk Decompression and Endoscopic Scoliosis Surgery.
