Burak Ozgur, MD Biography
Unlike traditional open surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery requires only a few small incisions rather than one large one. Not only does this minimize the visibility of scarring, but it also means less blood loss during the operation, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery time. In fact, many patients make a complete recovery in just a few months rather than the year it takes to recuperate from open surgery.
Am I a candidate for spinal surgery?
Only your doctor can help you determine if surgery is right for you. Dr. Ozgur believes in treating patients as conservatively as possible, using non-surgical methods when possible. However, surgery may be right for you if previous non-surgical treatment attempts have been unsuccessful. There are many conditions minimally invasive spine surgery can treat, including scoliosis, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.
