Outpatient Spine Surgery
About Outpatient Spine Surgery
Until recently, spine surgery has been an intensive procedure requiring an inpatient hospital stay and long recovery time. Now minimally invasive surgical techniques are making outpatient surgeries possible. With technological advancements, minimally invasive spine surgery treats many conditions that use to require open surgery, which involved a long incision and muscle retraction in getting to the problem area.
Advantages of Outpatient Spine Surgery
Some benefits of minimally invasive outpatient spinal surgery include:
- A shorter recovery time
- A smaller incision, leading to less scarring
- Lower costs
- Lower infection rates at ambulatory surgical centers than hospitals
- Easier access for patients and their families
- Patients are afforded a more comfortable environment than a hospital
