Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures for the treatment of pain related to spine and associated structures is fast getting popular. The advances in the medical field is trying to make the treatment of spine less invasive and more effective. Few decades back the gall bladder and hernia surgeries were popularly done through huge cuts in the body but over the time science evolved and now these surgeries are preferably being done more effectively and precisely through much smaller cuts. This evolution is not restricted to the abdomen only and spine surgeries are also not untouched with these advances. The evolution of the Minimally Invasive Procedures in Spine is still continuing with the quest to precisely treat the pain generating tissues, leaving the normal structures to preserve the required body functions.
It has been observed that people tend to delay a spine surgery endlessly for the fear of an untoward outcome, prolonged hospital stays and the loss of time and money. Many at times it is the old age and co-morbid diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes or heart ailments which poses high risk of anesthesia for the spine surgery and patients end up refusing for surgery in view of the risks involved.
Moreover, due to lack of awareness and expertise, these patients are never given an alternative of highly advanced minimally invasive spine interventions which are safer, less invasive and targeted treatment options for the spine ailments. It is even a safer bet for those who are high risk cases for anesthesia as it is less invasive and lesser damaging.

One of the major advantage of Minimally Invasive Spine procedures is that it is done under local anesthesia keeping the patient aware, awake and constantly communicating with the operating surgeon during the procedure. Doing the procedure under local anesthesia ensures correct pain generating area and safety from any damage to other neural structures. This novel method allays the most important concern of the patients about getting post- operative complications related to nerve injuries.
The entire procedure is done through a less than a centimeter cut under local anesthesia. This allows the patient to walk around within hours of surgery and eat and drink whatever they want. The shorter hospital stay is a great advantage to the people leading a demanding lifestyle and to those who have financial constrains to afford for longer hospitalization costs.
