The trend in spine surgery for many procedures has been moving toward minimially invasive approaches. These include spine surgery for lumbar fusion, deformity surgery, cervical surgery and sacroiliac joint fusion. The benefits of minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery include decreased pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery. However, there is a difficult learning curve for surgeons when mastering MIS procedures. Increasing familiarity with MIS techniques increases the options for surgeons and lessens surgical complications. The goal of this conference is to update neurological and orthopedic surgeons and allied health professionals on the latest advances in minimially invasive spine surgical techniques.
