Welcome to Miami Spine Institute
From Dr. Amar Rajadhyaksha
At the Miami Spine Institute, we believe in using the least invasive treatment option possible. Noninvasive treatments include pain management, rehabilitation, and physical and occupational therapy. When surgical intervention is needed, the Spine Institute uses the latest in technology and innovation to perform the least invasive surgery possible with the most effective and safe results. Minimally invasive microsurgical techniques are used on an inpatient or outpatient basis for certain interventions, including discectomies, while major surgical capabilities are available for more complicated problems.
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is a general term used to describe a variety of surgical techniques, which involve making smaller incisions and reducing the amount of tissue damage beneath the skin. In spinal surgery, minimally invasive surgery is accomplished with the aid of specially designed instruments, which assist in the visualization of the surgical field. Typically, this is done with tubular retractors which allow the surgeon to make a small incision but visualize a larger area beneath the small incision.
