Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a kind of surgery which involves tiny incisions, least manipulation of the muscles and avoids damaging tissues that surround the spine. MISS takes shorter operative time, less post-operative pain and gives faster recovery. MISS stabilizes the vertebral bones and spinal joints and also reduces the pressure applied to the spinal nerves.
