Minimally-invasive surgical techniques are not new; they have been used for years in many different medical specialties, including neurosurgery, or spine surgery. In fact, minimally-invasive spine (MIS) surgery has all but replaced many of the more traditional, open methods of neurosurgery. MIS is much safer and allows patients to heal and recover faster.
At Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno, NV, Dr. Sina Rajamand uses this advanced technology and true minimally-invasive techniques to perform many different spinal repair procedures. Dr. Rajamand is a renowned specialist at true minimally-invasive neurosurgery. The most common neurosurgical MIS procedures Dr. Rajamand performs include:
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Herniated Disc
- Cervical Spinal Stenosis
- Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
- Spinal Deformities such as Scoliosis
- Spinal Infections
- Spinal Instability, including Spondylolisthesis
- Vertebral Compression Fractures
- Spinal Tumors
Dr. Rajamand uses small surgical tools and tiny cameras that are inserted through fewer and smaller incisions, about 1” – 1½” in length. The cameras project an image of the surgical site onto a large monitor so Dr. Rajamand can see everything in a much larger view. This enables him to make precise operations with no unnecessary movements that could damage adjacent tissues.
The smaller surgical site and more precise operations allow patients to heal much faster, and with reduced risks for infection after the procedure. Many patients recover from even the most complex spinal surgeries within days or weeks.
Advanced Spinal Surgery
When different spinal conditions cause back pain, neck pain, radiating pain or other symptoms that cannot be relieved with more conservative treatments, minimally-invasive spine (MIS) surgery is a safe and very effective option. Dr. Sina Rajamand is an extensively trained and experienced neurosurgeon who specializes in minimally-invasive neurosurgery in Reno. He and his team at Battle Born Brain and Spine provide superior options for advanced spinal surgery using the most innovative minimally-invasive techniques and technologies available.
