This minimally invasive technique is used in place of a traditional lumbar spinal fusion. Utilizing a small incision via the patient's side, x-ray, and nerve monitoring, a cage is placed to correct spinal deformities. Stabilizing with this technique provides relief by removing pressure from the affected nerves, while causing minimal muscle trauma.

  • Downtime:
    Patient can immediately reenter their normal life.
  • Recovery
    No external brace needed! Restrictions on some twisting, bending, and heavy lifting for up to 6 weeks. Walking and isometric core exercises are encouraged to begin right away to aid in retraining the neuromuscular system.
