Minimally invasive surgery...anyone?

Has anyone had minimally invasive surgery for stenosis? I've done some reading and watched some educational videos from the EDITED, and it sounds so promising. I'd love to hear from anyone who has had this type of surgery...what kind of results did you have?

  • Depends what causes your stenosis.

    If your stenosis is caused by disc protrusion into spinal canal, then you are perfect candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery PLDD (percutaneous laser disc decompression).
