Pros and Cons of Back Surgery from timscott's blog

This info-graphic titled ‘Pros and Cons of Back Surgery’ provides an overview of benefits of back surgery. Minimally invasive surgery uses little incisions and usually causes less harm to the body. This type of surgery causes less pain overall and renders a faster recovery period when used as treatment for different spine conditions. Minimally invasive methodologies can be used for procedures such as lumbar decompression and spinal fusion. Since this procedure is acquired by performing the surgery through smaller incisions, it results in less pain and less possible follows ups overall. Some benefits of having a spine surgery include:

Less scarring

Reduced risk of infection

Less soft tissue damage

Minimal pain during and post operation

Faster recovery time


Like any other type of surgery, there are risks and complications patients demand to be aware of. Before starting the procedure, your surgeon will have a conversation with you about the plausible complications surgery may bring about. A good surgeon will brief you on the course of measures necessary to help avoid potential risks. Some potential complications may encompass:


Blood clots
