To better define MIS Surgery, lets look at what traditional methods of surgery consist of. Typically, lumbar spinal surgery consists of a large incision down the middle of the back and retracting or striping muscle off bone in order to get to the source of your problem. This results in longer recovery times, longer operative times, more blood loss, more scaring and greater risk of nerve damage. It's important to understand that these methods are unavoidable in some situations with the spine.
Minimally invasive surgery techniques used by Dr. Owusu consist of using scientifically proven muscle sparing techniques that allow safe and effective access to the spine. The result is reduced operative times, less tissue damage, smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, faster recovery with less post-operative pain, and shorter to no hospital stay.
