This technique utilizes modern technology to reduce tissue trauma, bleeding, hospital stay and recovery by minimizing the size of the incision.

  • Complete medical examination before surgery
  • Blood examination to check for normal parameters
  • Some medications may need to be stopped before surgery. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners.

During Procedure

  • This procedure is performed under anaesthesia. The most common types of anesthesia used for MISS are general or regional
  •  MISS is performed with special tools called tubular retractors.
  • During the procedure, a small incision is made and the tubular retractor is inserted through the skin and soft tissues down to the spinal column. This creates a tunnel to the small area where the problem exists in the spine.
  • The tubular retractor holds the muscles open and is kept in place throughout the procedure.
  • The surgeon accesses the spine using small instruments that fit through the centre of the tubular retractor.
  • Any bone or disk material that is removed exits through the retractor, and any devices necessary — such as screws or rods — are inserted through the retractor. Some surgeries require more than one retractor.
  • In order to see where to place the incision and insert the retractor, the surgeon is guided by fluoroscopy or endoscopy
  • The tubular retractor is removed at the end of procedure and the muscles return to their original position limiting the muscle damage .
  • The incision wound is stitched, stapled, or glued

 After Procedure

  • Antibiotics administered to prevent infection.
  • Painkillers prescribed for pain after surgery .
  • Patient is usually discharged the same day or within 1-2 days of surgery depending upon the general condition and the procedure .
  • It is important to keep follow up appointments with the consultant for check up after surgery .
  • Any symptoms of infection must be reported immediately .
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation are important part of recovery process .
