Spine Surgery In Iowa City, Iowa
Spine pain can be debilitating and intrusive in a patient’s life. At Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center (Iowa City ASC), we understand that when you are faced with the need for spine surgery you want to get back to a better standard of living, where pain is not stopping you from doing the things you love.
Spine surgery has been historically been an intense and invasive procedure requiring a hospital with long recovery times. However technological advancements have made minimally invasive spine surgery options a reality.
Minimally invasive spine surgery is making outpatient spine surgery not only possible, but the preferred way to handle correctible spine problems.
Minimally Invasive Outpatient Spine Surgery
Iowa City ASC uses a number of techniques to perform minimally invasive spine surgeries. Some of the benefits of minimally invasive procedures are:
- Generally safer with lower risk of complications
- Reduced blood loss
- Less pain
- Smaller incision means smaller scars
- Reduced recovery due to damaged muscles and other tissue
- Shorter time in the hospital and quicker outpatient recovery
