Welcome to the Patient Hub

Complex Spine London consultant first to offer innovative iMAS surgery in the UK

iMAS, a pioneering minimally invasive spinal surgery technique developed by leading neurosurgeon Dr Robert Masson at the Masson Spine Institute in Florida, US, is now available in the UK for the first time ever – by CSL’s Dr Syed Aftab at Royal London Hospital.CSL has been collaborating closely with the Masson Spine Institute to bring the technique outside of the US, and Mr Aftab spent time with Dr Masson in Florida, learning the technique. He’s already performed the procedure several times with excellent results, while Dr Masson – a world leader in the field, and whose clients in the US have included numerous high-profile athletes – has carried out the technique around 7,500 times to date. 

What is the iMAS Procedure?

iMAS stands for ‘Interpedicular Minimal Access Surgery’. Used for lumbosacral spinal decompression, reconstruction and stabilisation, it was developed to be as minimally invasive as possible and has been credited as being the least invasive micro-reconstruction in the world.This means significant reductions in the risk level of complications and infection, less time spent in surgery (the average hospital stay for patients is 1.1 days, and the technique is often performed on an out-patient basis too), plus less blood loss and smaller incision size, and a quicker recovery phase for the patient.In addition, it aims to provide better outcomes for patients with spinal injury and/or problems arising from spinal compression, in terms of returning to full fitness and getting back to enjoying physical activity.A passionate advocate of preventative health and fitness, Dr Masson sees iMAS as a philosophy rather than just a surgical technique, with emphasis also put on encouraging and supporting the right approach in terms of prehabilitation, post-surgery rehabilitation and physical conditioning and, ultimately, seeing patients get stronger and return to full, active lives.Read more about iMAS
