Surgery for chronic back pain doesn't have to mean a long stay in the hospital and a slow recovery.  On Thursday, October 21, Baptist Hospital neurosurgeon Sergio Gonzalez-Arias, MD, will perform a minimally invasive spine surgery during a live webcast.  The minimally invasive approach is used to relieve various types of pain.  The advantages over a traditional surgical procedure is less blood loss, less pain, smaller incisions and a quicker recovery.  Many patients go home the same day of the surgery.  Watch the live webcast and see this fascinating procedure as it happens.  Viewers are invited to send e-mail questions to Dr. Gonzalez-Arias during the webcast.  Viewers can also choose to watch the webcast in Spanish.
