At the UPMC Department of Neurosurgery, our spine specialists use minimally invasive techniques and state-of-the-art technologies to treat a wide range of spine conditions.
Minimally invasive spine surgery uses advanced techniques and technology to treat a patient’s spine condition without disrupting the surrounding soft tissues.
Computer-assisted technology and highly specialized tools and instruments are used to assist the surgeons with visualization and control.
Advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery at UPMC include:
