Abstract

Minimally invasive spine surgery has its roots in the mid-twentieth century with a few surgeons and a few techniques, but it has now developed into a large field of progressive spinal surgery. A wide range of techniques are now called \"minimally invasive,\" and case reports are submitted constantly with new \"minimally invasive\" approaches to spinal pathology. As minimally invasive spine surgery has become more mainstream over the past ten years, in this paper we discuss its history and development. © 2014 Laura A. Snyder et al.
