5) What do you mean by spinal instability or spondylolisthesis?
Spinal instability refers to excessive movement of the vertebrae, which results in a misalignment of the vertebrae. If left untreated, this misalignment can also cause spinal stenosis and pinched nerves.

It refers to an inflammation or irritation caused in the tendons. A series of acute injury, overuse or misuse of the ligaments can result in pain, swelling, and stiffness around the tendons, causing tendonitis.
7) What is a Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS)?
The traditional spine surgery gets performed through large incisions of about two to six inches with extensive muscle dissection and spinal exposure. The conventional method had more risks and complications associated with the healing process and side effects. The MISS offers many advantages to the patients such as faster healing process, less post-operative pain, small incisions, and less surgical complications.
