Different Tools Used During Spine Surgery

Many different tools and equipment are used during spine surgery to ensure a precise and successful outcome. Here are some tools that are most commonly used in spine surgeries:

  • Retractor arm: Spine surgeons use a retractor arm to hold back tissues and organs so they can clearly see the area they are operating on. \
  • Endoscopic tools: Endoscopic tools are most common in minimally invasive spine surgeries. They help to reduce tissue trauma which promotes a faster recovery. 
  • Surgical microscope: A surgical microscope helps surgeons have a better view of the spinal structures.
