State of the Art/ Next GenerationMinimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Technique

Minimally invasive back surgery has been used for many years now, and what this means has changed over time. Next generation minimally invasive techniques leave the strong muscle fibers attached to the spine, allowing strength to be maintained.
