In the past, having any type of neurosurgery meant an open procedure and a painful, lengthy recovery. Dr. Soldevilla, however, uses minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to help you get back to living your life as quickly as possible.
Smaller incisions and advanced technology such as endoscopy and navigated surgery allow Dr. Soldevilla avoid the kind of tissue damage that can occur during open surgery. Minimally invasive procedures also have a number of different advantages over traditional surgery, including:
- Less pain
- Less tissue and muscle damage
- Typically an outpatient procedure
- Smaller incision
- Faster return to activity
