Thanks to improvements in surgical techniques, instruments, and technology, the past decade has ushered in a whole new series of spinal surgeries that do not require a hospital stay. Outpatient spine surgery centers offer innovative procedures that allow you to go home the same day you have surgery. Additionally, compared to traditional surgery this type of surgery utilizes minimally invasive techniques to reduce the risk of complications.
At Jackson Neurosurgery Clinic, we perform many surgeries designed to treat degenerative spinal conditions and alleviate spine and neck pain. During your consultation, our neurosurgeon, Dr. Lewis, will discuss the treatment options that might benefit your specific scenario.
Benefits of Outpatient Spine Surgery
When you opt for outpatient spine surgery over traditional open back surgery, you’ll experience the following benefits:
- Shorter recovery time
- Low risk of complications
- Less loss of blood
- Reduced impact on soft tissues and muscles
Smaller incisions eliminate the huge scars associated with traditional spine surgery. Plus, you get to recover at home instead of spending days in a hospital.

How Outpatient Surgery Centers Differ from a Hospital
Outpatient surgery centers differ from inpatient settings in the type of care given following the procedure. If you undergo outpatient spine surgery, you’ll typically go home the same day. Any physical or rehabilitative therapy is also offered on an outpatient basis. Therefore, you’ll recuperate comfortably in your own home.
Outpatient spine surgery requires special skills and training as well as the right tools and facility to ensure the procedure goes as smoothly as possible. At Jackson Neurosurgery Clinic, our neurosurgeon has more than 20 years of experience performing an array of minimally invasive spine surgeries.
