One source of relief for chronic spinal pain is lumbar fusion, but a lot of people are intimidated by the idea of surgical intervention on their back. Minimally invasive lumbar fusion offers an effective alternative that involves less cutting and shorter recovery time.
At Colorado Spine and Scoliosis Institute, we believe you deserve a life free of spinal pain, and that by working closely with you to design a treatment plan based on the details of your life and condition we can help you get the pain free life that you deserve through surgery including minimally invasive lumbar fusion at our Denver location. Minimally invasive lumbar fusion surgery secures and fuses the vertebrae just like traditional lumbar fusion, but the smaller incisions cause less tissue damage during the process. The big difference in minimally invasive lumbar fusion is that we use a fiber optic viewing camera so that we can see what we are doing with as little incision as possible, rather than having to make large enough cuts in the patient to view our work. Our surgeon specializes in finding innovative methods to reduce the trauma to tissue around the surgical site, making us the leading source for minimally invasive lumbar fusion in Denver.
