Minimally Invasive Surgery
St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is a Certified Center of Excellence in Spine & Orthopedic Surgery.
ST. VINCENT CHARITY MEDICAL CENTER OFFERS A WIDE RANGE OF ADVANCED, MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES
WHAT IS MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY?
Minimally invasive surgery is used to stabilize the vertebral bones or to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves from conditions such as:
- herniated disc
- stenosis (the narrowing of the spinal canal)
- bone spurs
Unlike traditional “open spine surgery,” minimally invasive surgery allows for a much smaller incision – often less than one inch compared to the 5 to 7 inch incision of traditional surgery – and does not require the surgeon to cut into or traumatize surrounding muscle tissue.

Our team of surgeons use the latest approaches and innovative technology to help you recover faster than traditional surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures offer patients a smaller incision, faster recovery time and less pain. Many patients walk the same day after surgery.
