Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
In the event that surgery is needed to treat your spinal condition, the spine surgeons at Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Spine Center have the expertise in a number of different minimally invasive spine surgery techniques. Serving Greater Boston communities, our surgeons routinely perform spine surgeries that include:
- Kyphoplasty - minimally invasive procedure used to treat painful, progressive vertebral compression fractures.
- Vertebroplasty - minimally invasive procedure used to treat and stabilize spinal compression fractures.
- X-Stop - minimally invasive procedure used to alleviate painful symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis.
- Percutaneous Discectomy - minimally invasive procedure to remove herniated disc material pressing on nerve roots or the spinal cord.
The use of minimally invasive surgical techniques provides a number of benefits for patients, including shorter surgery times and quicker recovery. If you are interested in learning more about surgery at The Spine Center, or you would like to arrange an appointment, contact us.
