Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

If your back pain or back injury is not responding to conservative treatments (medication, physical therapy, chiropractic manipulation, pain injections), you’ll want to consider a surgical solution.

We know the idea of spine surgery can be daunting. Will it be painful? How long will I be in the hospital? How long before I can resume my regular activities?

EvergreenHealth's spine surgeons are leaders in minimally invasive spine surgery, which offers a quicker recovery and a quicker return to your life, pain-free.

The Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Advantage

The surgeons at the EvergreenHealth Spine Institute perform more minimally invasive spine surgeries than any other hospital in the state.

Minimally invasive spine surgery accomplishes the same results as traditional surgery but uses tiny incisions the size of a dime.

The smaller incisions mean less tissue damage, less bleeding and less risk of infection.

Computer-navigated Surgery

EvergreenHealth was also among the first hospitals in the nation to utilize spine navigation system technology. Like the GPS in your car, it uses scans of your anatomy and a navigation camera in the operating room to show the exact positioning of the surgical instruments.

This means greater precision, greater safety and better results.
