A few decades ago, the scariest part about being diagnosed with a spine problem was the fact that there was a high risk of the problem getting worse after the surgery to improve it. Fortunately tough, medical science has come a long way since then and now most of the critical surgeries done are completely safe and have a high success rate.
MISS or Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is one of the latest and safest medical procedures for operating on the spine. There are many reasons why this procedure is far better and safer than traditional spine surgeries and you can read the full article. However, despite how attractive this kind of surgery may seem, it’s not for everyone. In some cases, there might be a need for a more extensive spinal surgery and in others this minimal technique might actually lead to complications in some patients. This is why it’s important to get a second opinion from a spinal surgeon before you opt for this procedure.
Some people don’t respond well to the anaesthesia that’s administered during the procedure and in other cases there might also be allergic reactions to the tools equipment used during the operation. Though this technique is supposed to reduce pain and discomfort, patients may experience discomfort or might even be at the risk of paralysis if the technique doesn’t suit them. On the bright side, if MISS suits the patient, they will recover quickly and be able to get back to their lives with their spine in a better condition than before. The best way around this is to have a few tests conducted before the surgery to see if there are any risks involved in the process.
