About Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery(MISS)

With the years of technological advances, the way surgery is performed today has completely changed. Open surgery is becoming less common, and minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more popular.

The treatment of degenerative disc disease has developed from traditional spinal open surgery to minimally invasive spinal surgery, including endoscopic spinal surgery.

Minimally invasive spinal surgery can be performed with various endoscopic techniques for lumbar, cervical, and thoracic areas such as optical, high-resolution cameras, light sources, high-speed Burr, and irrigation pumps.

Advantages of MISS

Minimally invasive surgery has proven to be more advantageous than conventional open surgery methods in that it preserves natural anatomical structures as much as possible and minimizes postoperative complications.

1. Minimize Incision and Surgical Site

There are fewer tissue dissection and muscle trauma, and fewer scars due to minimal skin damage.

2. Shortening of surgical period

There is less damage to the epidural blood supply, resulting in reduced blood loss and no epidural fibrosis and scarring.

3. Shortening hospitalization period and early functional recovery

Minimizing the surgical site, shortening the surgical period, and minimizing blood loss can aim for shortening the hospitalization period and early functional recovery.

Disadvantages of MISS

However, the big disadvantage is that these advancements require a longer learning curve.

It's Hard to Learn Surgery

Climbing the learning curve is diffcult & takes time.

There is a lot of Radiation Exposure

In performing surgery using c-arm, exposure to radiation in the learning process is inevitable.

And the equipment is Expensive

Then, what do beginners want?

Is there a way to minimize the learning curve?

Need a way to minimize difficult learning processes.

Can we access knowledge in easier way?

Should have access to knowledge in an easier way.

Can we improve the learning experience?

Need a way to improve our learning experience.

Where can I find all knowledge I need?

It’s hard to find all the knowledge I need.

How can it be done?
