Traditional surgery requires long and deep incisions that cut through layers of skin, muscle, and fat before stretching it out to expose the affected area. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s healing ability.

A statement from Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas mentions: “Open surgery does produce results, but along with it comes blood loss and risks of infection, all the while resulting in longer recovery times and hospital stays."

Dr. Kutz exposes the truths and goes into detail about traditional surgery that most patients do not know including blood clots, slowed recovery time, infections, allergic reactions, injury to nearby organs or vessels, impaired mobility, breathing problems, and sometimes even more pain. All these will require another round of surgery to correct the newfound condition, which could have been avoided altogether.

While most doctors will be honest and blunt about the situation, not everyone will be fully transparent and give their patients a full list of possible downsides until such signs and symptoms begin to manifest.

Minimally invasive neurosurgery is an alternative method to traditional surgical procedures. They promote a wide range of benefits that easily outweighs its cut counterpart.

A small incision will be made to make way for a tubular retractor that will work on the affected area in a nearly microscopic level. It offers better accuracy in concentrating on what needs to be done without risking collateral damage.

Among the benefits include minimal to no blood loss, a significant reduction in the risk of infection, less probability of injury to surrounding areas, and a shorter recovery period.

MINT or Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas offers MISS or Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery that provides treatment of herniated discs, degenerative disc diseases, spinal stenosis, and spinal tumors among others.

Neurosurgery often limits patient selection and qualification based on age and medical condition. MISS has been done on patients over 65 years of age and still yielded excellent results.

With the help of Dr. Kutz’s world-class and innovative surgical techniques, MINT promotes MISS to patients for them to have a shorter recovery and enjoy life better without worry or pain.

They offer diagnostic services and propose neurosurgery solutions for patients. Their aim is to provide quality care and promote a better quality of life without the same risks as traditional spine surgery.
