Minimally invasive Spine Surgery. The best solution for spine treatments!

What does Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery mean?
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeries are percutaneous or endoscopic procedures during which we use special optical cameras and tools which through small incisions [smaller than 2cm] we propel the waist, the thorax or  the abdomen in order to access the spine and perform the surgery.

Cervical Spine

The cervical spine, known as the neck, is the upper part of the body which connects with the thoracic spine. It performs a great number of functions and is extremely delicate. With its complex and intricate construct, and the many stresses and forces that can be placed on it through a trauma or even just daily activities, the cervical spine is at risk for developing a number of painful conditions.
The cervical spine holds and protects the spinal cord, supports the head and allows movement. It also allows blood flow to the brain.  The most common conditions that affect this area include: cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis, cervical fracture, and cervical kyphosis.
If you are experiencing any symptoms listed in the conditions above, it may be time to consult a specialist. Spine Surgery Greece evaluates your symptoms and provides the best treatment plan for you.

Lumbar Spine

The Lumbar spine refers to the lower back, where the spine curves inward toward the abdomen. Lower back pain is a common ailment due to the fact that the lower vertebrae&rsquos role is to support almost the entire torso therefore to lift most of our weight.
This type of pain can also arise for reasons ranging from improper posture to a compression fracture. The lumbar spine nerves create even stronger pain as the nerves become pinched or irritated from friction. Other common causes of reoccurring lower back pain include: muscle injury, which can occur from overuse or a sudden injury, fractured vertebrae, herniated disc, or damage to the cushioning between vertebrae, spinal stenosis, narrowing of the spinal canal, osteoarthritis, and a degenerative bone disease.
If you are experiencing any symptoms listed in the conditions above, it may be time to consult a specialist. Spine Surgery Greece evaluates your symptoms and provides the best treatment plan for you.

Pain Management

With the term Pain management, we emphasize on the specialty which focuses and treats all types of pain such as musculoskeletal, spinal and neuropathethic pain disorders. Through accurate diagnosis and an early intervention patient avoid spiralling of chronic or at least reduce the severity of pain. This way we effectively improve patients&rsquo quality of life. Minimally invasive procedures and proper use of medications are implemented to achieve those goals.
If you are experiencing any symptoms listed in the conditions above, it may be time to consult with a specialist. Spine Surgery Greece evaluates your symptoms and provide the best treatment plan for you.

Minimaly Invasive Spine Surgery (M.I.S.S.)

At the beginning in the 1990s, better understanding of spinal biomechanics, more-sophisticated instrumentation and refined techniques led to greater implementation of microsurgical procedures, including lumbar decompression and fusion. The beneficent outcome of using M.I.S.S. achieving outcome equivalent to those of open surgery are, smaller skin incisions, less blood loss, reduced risk of muscle damage since less or no cutting of the muscle is required, reduced risk of infection and postoperative pain, faster recovery from surgery and less rehabilitation required, diminished reliance on pain medications after surgery.
