Our minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery is a surgical procedure used to treat significant scoliosis.
Unlike the traditional open scoliosis surgery, the minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery is performed through small incisions, avoiding a large midline incision and extensive muscle and soft tissue trauma during the operation.
Traditional scoliosis procedures require excessive amounts of time in recovery, and carry severe risk and elevated potential for complication. Our minimally invasive alternative allows you to avoid the trauma of traditional scoliosis surgery and get back to the life you love sooner. Other benefits include:
- Minimal blood loss
- Proven safer than the traditional open procedure
- Shorter overall recovery
- Reduced risk of infection and complication
- Minimal scarring
- Shorter hospital stay
- Small incisions, less scarring
What is our minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery?
The minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery is used to treat significant scoliosis in adult patients.
During the procedure, the surgeon enters each level through a small incision, utilizing a dilating tube to widen the surgical area. The surgeon will utilize this surgical technique to access the affected levels of the spine to prepare them for proper placement of hardware. This minimally invasive technique allows for the correction of spinal alignment, thus reducing the associated pain and symptoms.
Common spine issues treated by our minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery include:
There are a number of common pathologies that may be exasperated by scoliosis, including bulging or herniated discs causing pinched or compressed spinal nerves and/or the spinal cord. These conditions can make an already debilitating case of scoliosis unbearable.
Our minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery is strategically formulated to bring patients suffering from advanced scoliosis the highest level of relief from their chronic pain and restore structural alignment to the spine.
Common symptoms relieved by minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery?
Patients suffering with scoliosis may be a candidate for the minimally invasive multilevel scoliosis surgery if their symptoms include:
- Isolated pain in the lower back
- Curvature causing pain in sides
- Nerve-related pain such as tingling, numbness or weakness
