    • Tumors
    • Herniated discs
    • Spinal trauma
    • Spinal deformities, such as scoliosis
    • Spinal compression
    • Spinal instability

    • Congenital spinal anomalies
    Am I a good candidate for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS)?

    You may be a good candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery if you have a spinal disorder that cannot be treated without surgery. Your doctor will recommend a treatment based on your particular spinal disorder, medical history, age, and overall health.
