SPINE SURGERY

The objective of spinal surgery is to treat the pathologies that cause back pain to the patient, using advanced techniques that allow decompression, realignment and stabilization of various vertebral structures.

The evolution of spinal surgery has changed a lot. Before, surgeries were much more aggressive, with larger incisions, resulting in greater postoperative pain and many days of hospitalization.

.

This reality has changed thanks to techniques such as minimally invasive surgery . Advantages of this type of spinal intervention:

  • Smaller incisions , thereby minimizing aesthetic impact

  • More limited and shorter interventions in operating room time

  • Shorter anesthesia

  • Safer and more effective interventions
