Minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery is usually the last resort to treat trauma or degenerative diseases that affect the health and function of your spine.
Minimally invasive spine surgery repairs or removes damaged spinal structures through small incisions. Minimally invasive techniques do far less damage to the spine’s soft tissues, so you heal faster and with less pain.
Girard Orthopaedic Surgeons Medical Group, Inc. provides adults and teens with several minimally invasive spine surgeries.
Dr. Tayyab performs comprehensive spine evaluations to find your pain’s source and determine if you qualify for surgery.
You’ll need minimally invasive spine surgery if you’ve suffered an injury or disease affecting the function of your spine that isn’t treatable with medication and other nonsurgical therapies.

Dr. Tayyab closely monitors your recovery to ensure that you’re pain-free and have a good range of motion in your spine. He can also recommend physical therapy to support the natural healing of your spine in the months following surgery.
