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 is 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.
