Keyhole Spine Surgery
Dr Lee Yang is a Gold Coast neurosurgeon and spine surgeon in Queensland who specialises in keyhole/complex spine surgery and advanced neurovascular surgery as well as all aspects of brain, spine and peripheral nerve surgeries.
KEYHOLE SPINE SURGERY
Dr Yang has a strong interest in developing keyhole spine surgery and performs keyhole spine operations every week for disc prolapse and canal stenosis.
Keyhole spine surgery is also known as minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS). This spine surgery is minimally invasive because MISS spine surgery is performed through one or more small incisions through which tubular retractors are inserted. MISS surgeries range from discectomies and decompressions for canal stenosis right through to instrumented fusions.
Keyhole spine surgery benefits include:
- minimized trauma to back muscle
- minimized risk to stability of spine
- less post-operative pain
- reduced hospital stay
- faster mobilization and return to work
- reduced risk of infection and blood loss
- improved back muscle function and physical form
Dr Yang will discuss the issues pertinent to your individual needs and keyhole spine surgery may not be the most optimal option in some patients.
