Benefits of MIS

Minimally invasive spine surgery can relieve pain and other symptoms associated with spinal conditions. Compared to open spinal surgery, MIS has several benefits such as: 

  • Less risk of muscle damage and infection 
  • A faster and milder recovery period 
  • Less bleeding during the procedure 
  • Smaller incisions and scars 

By choosing an MIS specialist like Dr. Moghimi, you can minimize the risks and recovery time associated with spinal surgery while achieving the relief you need for an improved quality of life.

Dr. Moghimi and his staff are first class in their care, expertise, and results. He is conservative and very informative in the most innovative techniques to help with pre and post surgery care. I would highly recommend him and his team (PA, nurse, Xray techs, and office staff) to anyone seeking the best possible care.

Surgery went as expected. I felt immediate relief from my old pain. I’m looking for these smart Drs. to figure out how to do back surgery w/o creating new pain. I was happy with the Northwest Hills Surgery Center—all of my village there were very professional. I’m a happy camper.
