The Aurora ZIP Procedure

The Aurora ZIP procedure is a minimally invasive spine surgery for chronic spine-related pain. Because this approach is minimally invasive, it often produces faster recovery times, reduced postoperative pain, and a lower risk of complications compared to traditional spinal fusion surgery.

A recent study found that the Aurora ZIP procedure resulted in significant pain relief for patients suffering from moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease. According to the National Institutes of Health, patients in the study reported a 67% reduction in pain after the procedure.
