4 Myths Debunked – Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery for Back Pain Relief

Have you ever tried back pain relievers, physical exercises, massages, and meditation but still could not find relief from your back pain?

If yes, you might need to consult a spine specialist at the Spine Center Of Texas. It is true that the decision to have minimally invasive spine surgery can be difficult due to the floating myths around you.

Let us make you aware of the truth behind these 4 myths about minimally invasive spine surgery.

Myth #1: Spine Surgeries Are Major Surgeries

It is not true that all spine surgeries are major surgeries. At the Spine Center of Texas, we do minimally invasive spine surgery. Minimally invasive spine surgery does not require large incisions. In addition, this procedure is fast and painless. Our spine surgeons perform minimally invasive spine surgery in Texas. Also, it requires less recovery time.

If you have any of the following symptoms, please call our office to book an appointment for the best spine treatment available in San Antonio, Seguin, and New Braunfels.

  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities
  • Spinal infections
  • Spinal instability
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal tumors

Myth #2: Spine Specialists Always Recommend Surgery.

Surgery is not for everyone — and our spine specialists know that. We first diagnose your problem, then check the condition of back pain. After that, we suggest you the best possible treatment. We start with medication and non-surgical treatment.

If you don’t get relief from back pain after medication and/or other treatment options, only then will we move on to surgical procedures, depending on your spine condition.

Myth #3: Recovery From Spine Surgery is Painful

It’s normal to feel pain after surgery, but with our minimally invasive spine surgery, you feel very limited – to no pain – after surgery. Our doctors are experts in minimally invasive surgeries and make sure that you feel no, or very little pain, after surgery.

Myth #4: Recovery From Spine Surgery Takes a Year or Two

It is true that recovery from spine surgery takes time but it varies from few weeks to few months, not a few years. Like with our laminectomy or fusion surgery, you are recovered within a month or two. Our surgeon does the best procedure to make you fit and free from back pain.
