Abstract

Minimally invasive spine surgery has gained considerable momentum and increased acceptance among spine surgeons throughout the years.

This article provides a succinct historical perspective of the development of spine surgery from the more traditional, open procedures to the use of more "minimal access" or minimally invasive spine surgery procedures.
