What There is to Know Concerning Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive procedures are essential for stabilizing your spine, relieving nerve pressure, and inserting cutting-edge devices proven to be effective in reducing pain. For this procedure, you need an experienced provider for the best results. If you are looking for minimally invasive spine surgery in Frisco, you are in good hands at Integrative Pain & Spine. Contact Dr. Badiyan and his team to determine how you can benefit from this innovative outpatient procedure for your persistent pain.

What is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery involves small incisions using specialized surgical instruments and devices, fitting easily through the narrow opening. How can I benefit from minimally invasive surgery? 

Conventional open surgery begins with a single, long incision. Your muscles and skin are retracted, creating an opening large enough for the surgeon to access your spine. In comparison, the tiny incisions of minimally invasive spine surgery are less traumatic.

You will experience less bleeding and pain from minimally invasive surgery. Your risk of infection is significantly lower with quicker recovery benefits. Another advantage of this procedure is that it does not affect your muscles.

Rather than cutting through your muscles, Dr. Badiyan creates an incision on the upper tissues, inserting a retractor that gently pushes the muscles out of the way to make room for the surgical instruments. Following the surgery, your muscles move back into place without a long healing process. You will require no overnight hospital stay.

What Are the Types of Available Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Being an interventional pain management specialist, Dr. Badiyan of Spine & Joint Physicians of Frisco often conducts minimally invasive spine surgery to implant advanced devices proven to relieve pain. Two examples are:

  • Vertiflex® Superion® Indirect Compression System

The vertiflex superion is a tiny decompression device that Dr. Badiyan places between two vertebrae. Once the superion is in position, it stabilizes the bone, preserving normal movement, whereas removing pressure on pinched nerves.

Dr. Badiyan might recommend this procedure to address nerve compression caused by spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal due to several spinal conditions.

  • HF10™ Therapy

This is an innovative spinal cord stimulator. The HF10 applies mild electrical impulses to calm nerves and block pain signals without causing the tingling sensations synonymous with other types of spinal cord stimulators.

Before implanting HF10, Dr. Badiyan ensures you undergo a trial period to ensure it is ideal for you. Suppose you resolve to keep the device, your provider threads flexible wires along your spine while placing electrodes near the nerves sending pain signals. He then implants the generator beneath your skin, connecting it to the wires.
