Northwestern Finds Minimally Invasive Back Surgery Preserves Normal Motion

Northwestern Medicine physician-scientists are providing new evidence to support the increased use of minimally invasive (MI) back surgery. The group of neurosurgeons found that normal spinal anatomy may remain largely intact when using an MI approach to alleviate pain caused by pinched nerves in the lumbar region. The findings were recently published in PLOS ONE.
