Patients travel from New York to Laser Spine Institute’s regional surgery centers
When back pain started affecting Kyle Hassell’s personal life, he knew it was time for a change. Lower back spasms restricted him from enjoying outdoor activities. Kyle traveled from New York, N.Y., to Laser Spine Institute to get the best patient care. “Everyone was pleasant and made me and my fiancée feel welcomed and comfortable regarding the services provided here,” he said. “I would tell everyone I know with neck or back pain to at least see what Laser Spine Institute has to offer.”
With surgery centers around the nation, Laser Spine Institute is here to help if you, like Kyle, are considering treatment for neck or back pain with spine surgery. Above all else, it’s important to remember that you have a number of options available to find relief. Many times, a patient will consent to an invasive traditional open spine surgery as a reactionary response to chronic neck and back pain without learning the alternatives available.
Studies have suggested the vast majority of aches and pains – even those caused by spinal deterioration – can be managed with a steady course of conservative, non-invasive treatment, such as pain medication, low-impact exercise and hot/cold therapy. In the event that these treatments prove ineffective, contact or visit one of Laser Spine Institute’s regional surgery centers to learn how one of our minimally invasive procedures may be able to help you find relief from neck and back pain.
The spine surgeons at Laser Spine Institute treat a variety of degenerative spine conditions, including:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet disease
- Foraminal stenosis
- Pinched nerves
- Bulging discs, herniated discs, and other disc problems
Minimally invasive treatment
For patients who don’t respond to conservative treatment, invasive traditional open back surgery isn’t the only chance for meaningful pain relief. Outpatient minimally invasive spine surgery is a treatment option that can be completed in about an hour and doesn’t require the recovery, rehabilitation and risk typically associated with traditional open spine operations.
During a minimally invasive procedure, an orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon will pinpoint the source of a patient’s discomfort and remove the problem without muscle dissection. As a result of advances in medical technology, spine surgeons also only require a small incision to access the spine. This also reduces the chances of excessive scar tissue formation and infection.
