Experts in Minimally Invasive Surgery

Brigham Health has a wealth of experience in performing minimally invasive surgery for various spinal disorders. We offer a wide range of minimally invasive options, including intervertebral disc annuloplasty, coflex® for moderate to severe spinal stenosis, oblique lumbar interbody fusion and more. In addition, we were one of the few centers in the United States to conduct microendoscopic spine surgery to treat conditions such as disc herniation, spinal stenosis, and sciatica (nerve pain down the legs).

Many spine conditions can be treated using minimally invasive surgery, which is an alternative to traditional open surgery. Minimally invasive procedures involve smaller incisions and preserve more normal muscular structure, resulting in less pain, less scarring and faster recovery time.

While COVID-19 has put a temporary hold on many surgical procedures, that doesn't mean that preparation for those surgeries has to stop. Through Virtual Visits, our team is committed to helping you achieve many of the typical pre-operative steps virtually, while continuing to evaluate and manage your condition until your surgery can be scheduled.
