Spinal percutaneous screw fixation is often called as percutaneous pedicle screw fixation. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is mostly performed as a part of spinal fusion surgery to provide strength and support to the spinal column.
The procedure involves attachment of stabilizing rods in individual vertebrae of the spine. It is performed in association with advanced imaging technology. Imaging helps in identification of the pedicle that will best support the stabilizing rods. Stabilizing rods are fixed using small screws.
This procedure is performed through small incisions and surgeon is guided by wires and endoscopic camera to insert the rods.
