Nichols Auditorium, Ventura
Minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) was first performed in
the 1980s, but has recently seen rapid advances. Technological advances
have enabled spine surgeons to expand patient selection and treat an
evolving array of spinal disorders with less tissue disruption. This can
result in quicker recovery, decrease operative blood loss, and speed patient
return to normal function. The indications, minimally invasive approaches
and results will be discussed in a relaxed informal setting with audience
questions and participation encouraged.
