More and more, patients demand minimally invasive spine surgery. That’s why these methods will lead as key interventions in 2017.
Innovations like robotic spine surgery are taking the lead in offering patients advanced therapies to address back pain. As patients become increasingly educated with respect to what’s available in terms of treatment, the medical community is seeking new ways to answer demand, coming together in a concerted effort to offer the least invasive methods, with the most rapid recovery times.
The path to innovation.
Since 2008, the WCMISSTA (World Congress on Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Techniques Association) has been meeting to explore new frontiers in the provision of procedures that offer less invasive surgical responses. The work of this organization will be done in Paris, France this year. Spine surgeons from all over the world will meet to discuss innovation and ongoing research, at a peer-directed conference, bringing together leaders in the field.
Minimally invasive techniques are redefining spine surgery in 2017, putting WCMISSTA on the leading edge. This organization is the spine care sector’s vanguard, examining ongoing developments which offer patients advances that mean faster recovery.
The reason minimally invasive techniques are redefining spine surgery in 2017? Technology. Because of the burgeoning of technological advances, all fields of medicine are in a state of rapid renaissance which brings those suffering from back pain innovative ways to address it and enjoy full and rapid recovery.
Innovation and growth.
Because of recent innovations in minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), the demand for it has grown exponentially. You’re probably reading this because you’re interested in knowing more about MISS. You’re part of a growing demographic that’s drawing on the vast storehouse of information on the internet to become better acquainted with what’s available. You’re one of the drivers of the growth in MISS technology and the reason the medical community is responding.
Clearly, MISS offers patients assurance that the integrity of their bodies is less compromised by surgeries which have, in the past, been considered threatening, or dangerous. This type of surgery also offers less down time and reduced recovery-oriented therapy, which gets patients back to the quality of life they’ve enjoyed previously much more quickly.
MISS is growing at an exponential rate. Between now and 2020, MISS will grow as a preferred therapeutic response by almost 8%. As the medical community responds, this rate will increase, with more surgeons trained in MISS becoming available.
