Minimally invasive Spine Surgery

DISC of Louisiana specializes in minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery. It means smaller incisions, smaller risks of complications, less blood loss, and quicker recoveries. Our doctors use the newest technology and imaging to allow our surgeons to see your spine safely, and without a larger incision.


Recover at home, the same day as your surgery

Incisions are usually less than one inch! Our surgeons use special surgical tools to access the damaged area of your spine without harming the muscles and tissue around it. When compared to traditional -or- “open” procedures, MIS consistently sees better outcomes. Northshore spine surgeons, Dr. K. Samer Shamieh, Dr. Justin L. Owen, Dr. Jeremy R. James and Dr. Sean Michael Rider are spine surgeons in Southeast Louisiana with the training, skill, and technology to provide MIS surgery.
