    What are the risks involved?

    The risks involved with MISS are similar to those caused by open spinal surgery, but undergoing MISS can result in a reduced risk of infection, with antibiotics being prescribed regularly for before, during and after the surgery. Other risks include bleeding, pain at the site of the surgery and at the site of bone graft.  Some recurrences of the original symptoms may occur after surgery such as pseudarthrosis, a condition in which there is not enough bone formation, nerve damage and the formation of blood clots in the legs.
