Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Surgeons are currently setting trends by opening themselves to new technologies and devices that are able to relieve pain and bring about long-lasting results. Together, the combination of technological advances, improved understanding of anatomy, and surgeon training has opened an exciting age of implementing the use of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS). Procedures such as laminectomies, discectomies, interbody fusions and placement of spinal instrumentation can easily be performed with minimal muscle dissection and maximum effectiveness. Correction for scoliosis patients, who historically required a recovery period of three to six months, now may be managed with recovery times as short as three to six weeks. Key advancements in spine surgery as they relate to current clinical studies will be addressed.
