What is a minimally invasive spine surgery?

Traditionally, the spine surgeries are carried out as open surgeries involving long incisions to allow the surgeon to have better access to the anatomical structures. However, in recent years the minimally invasive techniques have been used, in smaller incisions are made and lesser invasion to the surrounding areas. This technique helps in smoother and faster recovery after the surgery. The doctor has to examine the patient’s condition to decide if he/she can have minimally invasive surgery.

Can smoking cause spine disorders?

Absolutely yes. Smoking causes shrinkage of blood vessels throughout the body. Since the spinal disc already has meager blood supply as compared to the rest of the body. Smoking accelerates the process of the degenerative process by reducing the amount of blood and oxygen to the tissues. Also, smoking increases the pain perception for those who undergo any treatment. The increased pain perception may cause elevated use of narcotics to control pain and thus resistance to the non-surgical treatment options. Not only this, but the overall success rate of the surgery is also much lesser in smokers than that in non-smokers.
