#DYK – Minimally invasive spine surgery has a number of benefits. Primary amongst these benefits is shortened muscle recovery time. Faster healing is also associated with less pain. It also causes less muscle weakness. Since the incisions are smaller than normal, they heal faster than a large incision. Smaller incisions also reduce the risk of infection.
