Laser Spine Institute’s regional locations serve patients from Las Vegas, Nevada
Neck pain drove Dennis Jensen to look into surgery for relief. Dennis traveled from Las Vegas, Nevada., to Laser Spine Institute to get the best care available. After his minimally invasive outpatient surgery, he said, “The staff at Laser Spine Institute was very knowledgeable and thorough.”
At Laser Spine Institute, we are proud of our surgery centers, which are located across the country. We’ve helped tens of thousands of patients, just like Dennis, find relief from their neck and back pain. While it’s true that as we age our spinal anatomy naturally begins to deteriorate, this doesn’t mean you need to be resigned to a life of pain.
In most cases neck and back pain responds well to conservative treatments prescribed by a family physician or spine specialist. Spine surgery is typically reserved for cases where a patient’s neck or back pain is severe or debilitating.
At Laser Spine Institute, we specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery, which is an outpatient treatment option for spine degeneration. Our orthopedic and neurosurgeons and physicians can pinpoint the exact source of a patient’s pain, treat it and complete the procedure in a fraction of the time required for traditional open spine surgeries.
The source of your neck and back pain
Neck and back pain can be traced to a number of causes, ranging from the lingering effects of a traumatic injury to regular wear and tear on the spine. Over the years, the spinal anatomy naturally begins to deteriorate, which can pave the way for a number of degenerative conditions, such as:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet disease
- Bone spurs
- Arthritis of the spine
- Spinal stenosis
- Bulging and herniated discs
Just because you have a degenerative condition does not mean you suddenly need to start worrying about spine surgery. As any orthopedic surgeon will tell you, most aches and pains can be managed effectively with the right conservative treatment. Low-impact exercises, stretching techniques, hot/cold therapy and medication can all provide relief without surgical intervention.
