Each procedure that falls into this category is meant to preserve tissue around the spine with minimal tissue disruption. The screws and cages may differ depending on the surgery, but all will provide the patient with less restriction, shorter hospital stay, lower use of opioid medication, and a stronger, faster recovery.

  • Downtime:
