Minimally invasive spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that fuses two or more vertebrae through a smaller incision than traditional spinal fusion surgery.
Advantages of minimally invasive spinal fusion
• Effective for lower back pain relief
• Total recovery time is short
• Minimal scarring

NOTE: Minimally invasive spinal fusion can only treat spinal conditions without significant deformities or high-grade spondylolisthesis.
