Core Tip Degenerative disease of the lumbar spine is a common and increasingly prevalent condition that is often implicated as the primary reason for chronic low back pain and the leading cause of disability in the western world. Compared to the traditional open spine surgery, minimally invasive techniques require smaller incisions and decrease approach-related morbidity. The benefits of minimally invasive surgery over traditional open surgery include reduced blood loss, decreased postoperative pain and narcotics use, shorter hospital length of stay, faster recovery and quicker return to work and normal activity.
