Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Hamid M. Shah, MD, neurosurgeon, is offering patients spine surgery using the smallest access incision possible. This specialized procedure provides:

  • Shorter length of hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Less back pain
  • Walking same day
  • Traditional open surgery outcomes, with a minimally invasive incision

Dr. Shaw is the only fellowship trained, minimally invasive spine surgeon in the city. He is able to offer micro discectomies and lumbar fusion through a 16 mm tube and laminectomies through an 18 mm tube. These incisions can leave a scar less than one inch long. Traditional incisions can be as much as three to three and a half centimeters.

For information about this procedure, call the Midwest Neuroscience Institute at Research Medical Center at (816) 363-2500.

Our physicians and staff are waiting to help you fully recover from back pain and injuries – just use our Nurses On-Call line and get back to normal life.
