Minimally invasive neurosurgery is a procedure that uses small or no incisions to treat a range of neurological conditions. Compared to traditional neurosurgery with larger incisions, minimally invasive neurosurgery often results in a quicker recovery and less risk of infection.

Orthopedic spine conditions, including spinal stenosis, herniated or ruptured spinal discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal arthritis, and bone spurs
Minimally invasive neurosurgery takes place in a Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican hospital or surgical center, depending on the specific condition. Not every person with a neurological condition is a candidate for minimally invasive neurosurgery.
Before your procedure, you may receive sedation or general anesthesia. You may be able to go home the same day or you may need to spend one or more nights in the hospital afterwards. Because of the variability involved, your doctor will tell you what to expect so you can plan accordingly.
In general, minimally invasive neurosurgery results in faster recovery, less pain, and less noticeable scars compared to traditional neurosurgery. However, every person’s experience is different.
Recovery time depends greatly on the specific surgery, additional treatments you may need after surgery, and your overall health. For instance, minimally invasive spine surgery will likely involve physical therapy to maximize your mobility and help you make a full recovery.
