Plano, TX (PRUnderground) October 3rd, 2019

Fuelled by the commitment to provide the best care and experience to his patients, neurosurgeon Dr. Scott Kutz and his team continue to be ahead in the field of spine surgery. With Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS), this revolutionary method of treating back problems caused by spinal stenosis, spinal instability, herniated discs, and scoliosis results in less surgical blood loss, reduced infection and damage risks, and quicker recovery times using even smaller incisions.

Global statistics show that 80% of the world’s population suffers from lower back pain at some points during their lifetime. Most of them experience the first attacks of lower back pain between ages 30 and 40. It becomes more frequent and worsens with age.

Lower back pain is caused by several factors. Physical fitness plays a huge factor, as sedentary individuals often experience it more. Strenuous activities such as lifting heavy objects without proper posture also trigger back pain, as well as lifestyle, heredity, and vices.

Annoying lower back pain may seem, the same level of annoyance is also seen in its treatment options. Pain killers, therapy, and surgery cost a fortune, as Americans spend more than $50 billion in healthcare bills annually. Kutz remarked that “back surgeries can be costly. It is hard to give an exact amount because total cost will depend on how bad your spine condition is and where the affected vertebrae are in your spinal column. Insurance coverage can help wind down the prices a bit, though.”

In response to the dilemma, Dr. Kutz and his team called the Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas (MINT) developed MISS, becoming one of the highest-standard surgery treatments available at present. Unlike the traditional ‘open’ surgery that involves complete exposure of the anatomy, MISS was developed as a precise incision procedure, ensuring less pain to the surrounding tissues and muscles, and requiring only four to six weeks of recovery.

People back then would have had to endure various back problems, such as degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, spinal tumors, myelopathy, scoliosis, and spinal stenosis. With this recent scientific breakthrough, MISS can now be utilized to deal with back problems, making use of several techniques such as cervical laminoforaminotomy, lumbar foraminotomy, lateral lumbar interbody fusion, percutaneous spinal instrumentation, sacroiliac joint fusion, and thoracic discectomy, among others.

MINT partnered with Globus Excelsius, a revolutionary robotic navigation platform, to utilize robots in various surgical placements, equipped with several features like image versatility, real-time information, precise navigation, trajectory alignment, and multi-functional robotic navigation.

When MINT was questioned on their edge in spinal surgery among other providers in Plano, they responded this way: “Personalized patient care puts Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas (MINT) above the rest.
