Percutaneous Spine Fixation Surgery
Percutaneous spine fixation surgery is a form of minimally-invasive spine stabilization surgery. Percutaneous means “through the skin,” meaning that tiny surgical incisions are used that do minimal damage to tissues and require only the smallest adjustments to work around muscle and tendons without damaging them. Dr. Sina Rajamand is a specialist at true minimally-invasive neurosurgery, and offers percutaneous spine fixation surgery at Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno, Nevada.
Dr. Rajamand must first pinpoint the exact location of the damage to your spine in order to know where this surgical procedure must be performed. He does this by using x-rays, CT scans and MRI imaging that shows the precise location of spinal damage. This allows pinpoint accuracy in the surgical incisions and repairs, minimizing damage to unnecessary areas.
Percutaneous spine fixation surgery then makes the smallest possible incisions through the skin, separating muscles and tendons to reach the spine. Then, small tools with cameras are inserted to perform the actual surgical operations. With spine fixation, also called spinal fusion, bone grafts are placed, along with screws, pins or other hardware, to hold the spine in place while the bone grows together (or “fuses”). Depending on the age and spinal condition of the patient, this hardware can later be removed, or it can be left inside.
