Treatment Overview :

The spinal nerves, vertebrae, and the discs are located deep inside the body. Getting access to them requires moving the muscle tissues out of your way. It gets facilitated by making a small incision to guide an instrument with in-built microscopic video camera through these incisions to have a better look of the spinal deformity. In general, lasers are very rarely used to perform MIS surgeries. There are various treatment options available for MIS surgery, such as:

Discectomy :

Spinal discs are nothing but elastic rings made up of soft material that serve as cushions between the vertebral bones. Once the elastic rings get weakened, the soft tissues are herniated outside of the elastic ring. The MIS surgery is recommended to trim or remove the herniated disc using a tubular dilator, a microscope, and an endoscope.
