This means that you will receive only the level of surgery required to meet the treatment goals while minimizing that risks and complications that are present in every operation.
 
Advances in spine surgery allow surgeons to use special instruments for visualization and access to the spine through a very small incision.

Even in cases where minimally invasive procedures are not indicated, the surgeons at the ActivCentre are experienced in the most complex spine procedures.
