A lot of patients might have stress and are afraid of getting a spine surgery because it is a major surgery. Moreover, there are a lot of important nerves around the spine that the spine surgeon needs to be cautious of during the surgery. Nowadays, there are innovative technologies that could assist the surgeon during the surgery which includes:
- Intraoperative Neuromonitoring: With this machine, the surgeon can check and monitor the nerve’s function in real-time during the surgery.
- Microscope: It can show an enlarged image of the incision, which allows the surgeon to perform the minimally invasive surgery.
- Endoscope: The endoscope will be inserted into the incision to assist the surgeon to see the patient’s internal organs clearly, thus the size of the incision will be reduced to 0.8-1 centimeter.
With these innovative technologies and the expertise of the surgeon, the potential risk when getting a spine surgery can be reduced, as well as the risk of having a paralysis. It also allows the patient to receive an effective outcome with small incision, less pain, and fast recovery.
