Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Spine Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in Newport Beach

Todd Peters specializes in minimally invasive orthopaedic spine surgery, which focuses on the musculoskeletal system for the treatment of spine conditions.. The procedures are considered minimally invasive because it is performed through tiny incisions, rather than the traditional single large opening. Smaller incisions are made possible by the recent technical advancements in endoscope design and microdissection instruments. Minimally invasive orthopaedic spine surgery uses smaller equipment that is more efficient in order to less instrusively access the intricate parts of the spine.
