Breakthrough in treating chronic back pain

(WFLX) - A new kind of back surgery is having a lot of success at treating chronic pain. Instead of cutting through muscle, doctors go through a patients abdomen to reach the spine and reduce pressure on the vertebrae.

Despite how it sounds, it's actually much less invasive than traditional procedures.

Doctors say hundreds of thousands of patients have already undergone the procedure and are now free from pain.
