Finding an Orthopedic Surgeon in Orlando, The Villages, Ocala, Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, & Throughout Florida

At Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Florida, and our other locations nationwide, you’ll find the most respected and intensively trained surgeons in the field of orthopedic spine surgery. Whether you’re in Kissimmee, Orlando, or anywhere else in the Sunshine State, an orthopedic surgeon should be someone you trust, both in terms of medical expertise and personal care. The good news is that, in addition to specializing in state-of-the-art minimally invasive neck and back procedures, Laser Spine Institute is famous for our personalized patient care and our ethical, courteous staff.

You don’t need an orthopedic surgeon to tell you that the discomfort of spine pain can have debilitating effects on your daily life. Because the spine is such a fragile, complex mechanism, small injuries or areas of deterioration can give rise to extremely painful symptoms, many of which are a result of degenerative disc disease, a condition that progresses as we age. Basically, each spinal vertebra is separated by a cartilaginous piece of padding. With time, these pads, called intervertebral discs, wear out and can extrude their inner material into the spinal canal (herniated disc), or they can stay intact but press beyond their normal perimeters (bulging disc).

Any abnormality in the spine can cause compression on the surrounding spinal nerves. An orthopedic surgeon will try to reduce this compression because it is the most common cause of pain in the neck and back. Spinal nerve compression can happen in any region of the spine and symptoms can include:

  • Cervical spine- upper neck and back region; trouble moving your head and neck; pain that travels from your neck through your shoulders and arms, tingling in the hands
  • Thoracic spine- middle back region; pain that seems to surround your rib cage; trouble twisting from side to side; discomfort surrounding your sternum
  • Lumbar spine- lower back region; trouble bending forward and backward; pain that begins in your lower back and radiates down through your buttocks and legs; numbness and muscle weakness

If you have spoken with your primary care physician about similar symptoms, and you have found a conservative course of non-invasive treatment to be ineffective, it may be time to consult an orthopedic surgeon. In the past, a patient might have been forced to undergo risky open spine surgery, but today there are new alternatives. Laser Spine Institute can tell you more about our minimally invasive procedures that can be performed on an outpatient basis. Contact us today for a complimentary review of your MRI or CT scan, because you deserve a second chance at a life without pain.
