Lateral Access Spine Surgery

In traditional spinal surgery, the spinal column is approached by the spinal surgeon from the posterior (back) or the anterior (front) sides. Recent technological advances now allow the spinal surgeon to approach certain parts of the spine directly from the side (lateral access). It is felt that this can be a significantly less invasive approach for the patient. Recent studies have demonstrated a faster recovery from surgery when this approach is used.
