LIVE SUGERY VIDEO - Treating Chronic Back Pain with Minimally Invasive Surgery

Premieres Thursday, October 21, 2010 at 4PM EDT

Surgery for chronic back pain doesn't have to mean a long stay in the hospital and a slow recovery. On Thursday, October 21, Baptist Hospital neurosurgeon Sergio Gonzalez-Arias, MD, will perform a minimally invasive spine surgery during a live webcast. The minimally invasive approach is used to relieve various types of pain. The advantages over a traditional surgical procedure are less blood loss, less pain, smaller incisions and a quicker recovery. Many patients go home the same day of the surgery. Watch the live webcast and see this fascinating procedure as it happens. 

Viewers are invited to send e-mail questions to Dr. Gonzalez-Arias during the webcast.

Viewers can also choose to watch the webcast in Spanish.
