Minnesota Spine Institute - Providing Extraordinary Back and Neck Surgery Solutions

Most minimally invasive procedures are not that minimally invasive. Endoscopic surgery to treat spine problems is revolutionary in changing the way a spine problem can be treated with faster recovery, less pain, and likely better outcomes.

First Class treatment is what you receive at MSI

Our surgical center is built on excellence through education, research and applied results in today's latest advancements in spine surgery technologies.

Traditional spine surgery involves making an incision, cutting the muscle off the spine, placing a retractor, and then performing the surgery through an open approach.

An endoscopic spine procedure is typically done through a 7mm incision, a portal is placed separating the muscle fibers, and the procedure is performed through a small tube.

The endoscopic approach leads to less pain, quicker recovery, and less scar tissue.
