Minimally Invasive Surgical Options for Spine Conditions

Surgeons at the Spine Center at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC offer the latest, minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat spinal disorders.

Our team generally employs nonsurgical and minimally invasive approaches as the first line of treatment, reserving traditional spine surgery for those who have recurrent, progressively worsening, or disabling symptoms.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Compared to traditional spine surgery, minimally invasive surgery is often more effective for treating certain spinal disorders.

Other benefits may include:

  • Reduced surgical complications
  • Reduced surgical blood loss
  • Reduced use of post-op narcotic pain medicines
  • Reduced length of hospital stay
  • Increased speed of functional return to daily activities

Taking pride in providing the highest quality care, our surgeons strive to return you to your best possible activity level in the shortest possible time.
