Tune in for LIVE Minimally Invasive Lumbar Surgery

Baptist Health is committed to keeping up with the latest trends and innovations in the healthcare industry. The next exciting and educational event will happen this month.

On Wednesday January 28th at 4:00 p.m. E.S.T., Neurosurgeon Sergio Gonzalez-Arias, M.D. will be performing a minimally invasive lumbar discectomy in order to fix a herniated disk on the lower back. 

The procedure will be broadcast LIVE online via Webcast. This is a great opportunity to watch a live surgical operation featuring a cutting-edge procedure. It will be an educational experience for all observers. 

We invite you to watch as Dr. Gonzalez-Arias begins the operation by making a small incision, before spreading the muscles around the area. This innovative spreading technique has many advantages over the traditional method of cutting the lower back muscles. There is often less blood or pain during recovery and most patients are able to return home the day of surgery.

Tune in to the LIVE Webcast and watch the procedure Wednesday, January 28th at 4:00 p.m.!
