At UVA, you can receive many minimally invasive spinal procedures on an outpatient basis. We can treat herniated discs, spinal stenosis and some types of spinal deformity using this technique.
Minimally invasive spine surgery allows surgeons to perform many spinal procedures through skin punctures or incisions less than 1 inch long. It treats:
- Herniated disc (cervical, thoracic or lumbar disc)
- Degenerative spinal disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Spine deformity (such as scoliosis and sagittal malalignment)
- Spine fracture or trauma
- Spine infection
- Spine tumor
