Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the space in the spinal column narrows. This puts pressure on the nerves in the spine, which can lead to pain and other symptoms.
This video explains one treatment option for spinal stenosis that may be a suitable alternative to open back surgery: minimally invasive surgery. Using small incisions of about one to two inches, the doctor decompresses the spinal nerves with specialized surgical tools.
