What Are the Current MIS Treatments?

International Board Member - Research Chair, Kevin Foley.

There is a rapid increase in technology that allows the MIS physician to treat patients with minimally invasive procedures. Some of these techniques are now well established, while others remain new and continue to evolve. The best MIS technique will depend on the specific character of the problem. While the list of MIS techniques continue to expand, the most commonly employed today include:

  • MIS Tubular Microdiscetomy
  • MIS Lumbar Laminectomy
  • Cervical Laminoforaminotomy
  • Endoscopic Discectomy
  • MIS TLIF
  • MIS Lateral
  • Percutaneous Pedicle Screw Instrumentation
  • Pre Sacral
