Patients who decide to proceed with surgery at Teton Orthopaedics can benefit from the latest advances in diagnostic imaging, surgical techniques, and medical equipment. For instance, by performing minimally invasive spine surgery, our surgeons can address certain spinal conditions through “buttonhole” incisions, which are much smaller than those typically required in a traditional procedure. As compared to highly invasive, open spine surgery, some potential benefits of minimally invasive low back surgery include:
- Little disruption to the soft tissue and muscles surrounding a surgical site
- A lower risk of infection and other surgical complications
- Minimal scarring
- Less post-operative pain
- A shorter hospital stay
- An easier recovery
Most patients who are being treated for back pain can benefit from physical therapy, which can be performed either after or instead of low back surgery.
