Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is sometimes called less invasive spine surgery. In a traditional, open surgery, the doctor makes an incision that is 5 to 6 in. long and moves the muscles to the side in order to see the spine. One of the major drawbacks of open surgery is that the pulling or “retraction” of the muscle can damage the soft tissue.
In minimally invasive spine surgery, doctors use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions. This avoids significant damage to the muscles surrounding the spine. In most cases, this results in less pain after surgery and a faster recovery.
