What Happens During a Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Clifton, NJ

Any spinal surgery, whether minimally invasive or traditional, is going to require moving muscle or tissue to access the spinal nerves, discs, or vertebrae located deep in the body. However, the strategic approach used by Oasis orthopedic surgeons during minimally invasive spine surgeries minimizes trauma. Minimally invasive spine surgery at Oasis Orthopedic and Spine in Clifton, NJ involves a device called a tubular retractor. This is a tube-shaped tool with a hollow center used to tunnel to the problem area of the spine. It gently pushes aside the muscle and soft tissue around the area, rather than cutting through. Using the hollow center of the tubular retractor, the surgeon uses a range of other small tools, an operating microscope, and real-time x-rays to repair the spine.
