Minimally invasive spine surgery, also referred to as MISS, is a pioneering alternative to regular spine surgery that limits the discomfort experienced by patients and speeds up recovery time. The surgery is performed by recognised experts such as Dr. Melamed, using the very latest surgical equipment. MISS was primarily developed to avoid the kind of muscle damage that can occur in regular surgery, leading to longer recovery periods. Benefits to patients are far reaching and include smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, reduced postoperative pain, shorter recovery times, less blood loss and a reduced risk of infection.
