Minimally-Invasive Techniques

About Minimally-Invasive Techniques

During minimally invasive techniques, MedStar Union Memorial orthopaedic surgeons make a small incision and use advanced computer technology and specialized instruments to repair back and spine conditions. In microscopic surgery, we combine minimally invasive techniques with highly sensitive, cutting-edge surgical microscopes to access even the most delicate areas with precision. These techniques can be used to treat a wide range of spinal conditions.

Minimally invasive techniques offer patients:

  • Faster recovery time than traditional spinal surgery
  • Reduced infection
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Faster return to your regular lifestyle
