If you’ve had back pain for some time you may have wondered if you need surgery. You may have heard about minimally invasive spine surgery, but are you a good candidate for such surgery?
Minimally invasive spine surgery is an appealing option for people with chronic back pain caused by certain conditions. It offers smaller incisions, less blood loss, shorter or same-day hospital stays, less pain and shorter recovery.
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty remain the treatments of choice for patients with painful vertebral compression fractures according to an updated review of literature by an expert panel of the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery (ISASS).
The panel reviewed the body of literature and found an overwhelming body of evidence supporting vertebral augmentation which they published in the International Journal of Spine Surgery.
