Our Primary Mission is:
To prevent patients from suffering the irreversible consequences of unnecessarily traumatic spine surgery and to provide better alternatives.

"Minimally invasive" has become a trite phrase that has lost its meaning and is used by different authors to describe totally different things. In the spine field, it is time to replace this language with a less ambiguous perspective focused on whether there is access trauma or not. Any procedure that is larger in the approach to the pathology than is necessary creates potential morbidity for the patient from the access itself.
