What is minimally invasive spinal surgery?

Dr. DAgostino focuses on using non-fusion surgery techniques whenever possible. So, instead of fusing spinal bones to stop movements that cause pain, he uses the Coflex® device, Vertiflex Procedure, or an artificial cervical or lumbar disc.

He also uses various surgical approaches when performing minimally invasive spinal surgery, including anterior (from the front), lateral (from the side), and posterior (from the back).

What can I expect during recovery from minimally invasive spinal surgery?

Recovery following minimally invasive spinal surgery varies and depends on the type of surgery performed and your diagnosis. However, most people recover faster from minimally invasive surgery than from traditional open surgery.

Dr. DAgostino discusses the procedure and recovery during your pre-surgical visit, so you know what to expect. Some people resume most of their daily activities within a day, while others may need to take it easy for a few weeks.
