Spondylolisthesis, Spine Fractures
Percutaneous spinal fusion, immediate mobilization, without substantial post-operative pain
With the new technique of Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery, fractures that need surgical stabilization become simpler and less painful. With very small incisions, similar to a laparoscopic operation, the necessary stabilization materials are placed, without substantial blood loss, and the patient is discharged in 2 days. Our experience shows that patients return to their activities pretty quickly, without any pain. Even the possibility of neurological damage caused by the injury is reduced, because these surgeries last less and the muscles, bones, and ligaments are not injured, so the recovery is faster.
Patients who have suffered a fracture or traumatic spondylolisthesis, either from a car accident, falling from a height, from osteoporosis or from a tumor of the spine , are suitable to undergo these surgeries. These surgeries are performed on the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.
Our results are excellent, even in the most complex and “difficult” sort of speak cases, as shown in the following images from our cases:
