What is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) is a modern surgical approach designed to treat various spinal conditions with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.

At Synergy Health Partners in Metro Detroit, our expert spine surgeons utilize state-of-the-art MISS techniques to provide pain relief and restore function, helping you achieve a pain-free and active lifestyle.
