Minimally Invasive Spine (MIS) Surgery
Minimally-invasive spine (MIS) surgery has all but replaced the more traditional open methods of neurosurgery that posed significant risks to patients and required extensive time for healing. Advanced technology and techniques allow Dr. Sina Rajamand to perform many different spinal repair procedures with much less risk that allows for much faster recovery. Dr. Rajamand and his team at Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno are specialists at true minimally-invasive neurosurgery.
The most common neurosurgical MIS procedures Dr. Rajamand performs at his practice at Battle Born Brain and Spine includes:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
- Spinal infections
- Spinal instability including spondylolisthesis
- Vertebral compression fractures
- Spinal tumors
True minimally-invasive spine surgery involves the use of small surgical tools and tiny cameras that are inserted through fewer and smaller incisions, many times no more than 1” – 1½” in length. The cameras project a view 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 without extraneous movements that could damage nearby tissues or structures.
