    As I recently found out from a different surgeon, minimally invasive procedures commonly produce more interior scar tissue than laying a person open. My MRI clearly shows where the 1" incisions over each screw has filled in with scar tissue (total of 8 incisions). Scar tissue and healthy tissue don't get along vey well! That's just one of the pain generators I have now.
