Paracoccygeal Transsacral Access to the Lumbosacral Junction for Interbody Fusion and Stabilization
Minimally invasive spinal surgery is not one single device, technique, or tool. It is a philosophy of targeting the pathological tissue while minimizing collateral tissue damage in order to preserve native function and promote rapid recovery. In the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques, one requires a thorough understanding of the spinal anatomy, an appreciation of the pathology, and specialized tools to facilitate the intended intervention.
