Spine Surgery

Dr. Joseph Maroon has performed many thousands of minimally invasive procedures (also known as microsurgical procedures) in both the cervical and lumbar spine. With an intimate working knowledge of the microsurgical approach, Dr. Maroon remains firm in his belief that such a technique is the gold standard against which other procedures must compare. See below for a video explanation by Dr. Maroon and more information.

Philosophy of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is conducted through a small incision, usually with the aid of a microscope or endoscopic visualization device, such as small cameras designed for viewing internal portions of the body. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is intended to treat disorders of spinal discs while causing only minimal muscle related injury in order to allow rapid recovery. Traditional surgical approaches to the spine would generally necessitate a longer recovery period due to the greater impact on the muscle tissue and rest of the body. The newer Minimally Invasive Procedures are intended to offer several major advantages, including: Reduced surgical blood loss and complications; Reduced use of post-op narcotic pain medicines; Reduced length of hospital stay; and hence Quicker return to daily activities.
