Back & Spine Surgery Specialists Serving the Greater Las Vegas, NV Area
Laser Spine Institute is proud of our surgery centers, located across the country in Tampa, Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Houston and Scottsdale, where we’ve helped tens of thousands of patients from Las Vegas and worldwide 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 the family doctor or a spine specialist. Spine surgery is typically reserved for cases where the patient’s neck or back pain is severe or debilitating. At Laser Spine Institute, we specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery, which is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment option for spine degeneration. Our orthopedic surgeons 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 open spine surgeries. To learn about our exciting procedures, call or visit one of our regional surgery centers.
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 are suffering from 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.
