ⓘ Minimally invasive spine surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery, also known as MISS, has no specific meaning or definition. Basically, it is marketing language that implies a lack of severe invasion, that may or may not be the case. The old style open-spine surgery for a simple disc problem used to require a 5-6 inch incision and a month in the hospital, 60 years ago. Miss techniques utilize more modern technology, advanced imaging techniques and special medical equipment to reduce tissue trauma, bleeding, radiation exposure, hospital stays and recovery by minimizing the size of the incision. Modern endoscopic procedures can be done through a 2 to 5 mm skin opening, with no internal cutting. By contrast, procedures done with a microscope require skin openings of approximately one inch, or more. Since the one inch cut goes all the way down, it can only be called relatively MISS.

Miss can be used to treat a number of pathological conditions such as degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, fractures, tumors, infections, instability and deformity. It also makes it possible spine surgery for patients previously considered too high risk for traditional surgery due to previous history of illness or complexity of disease.
