Minimally Invasive Treatments
Typical surgical treatments involve massively invasive surgery, requiring many months of recuperation and a less than 50% chance of success.
Laser Spine Institute offers a minimally invasive, endoscopic procedure to remove bone spurs with minimal recuperation and a very high success rate. Depending on the location of the bone spur(s), Laser Spine Institute’s Foraminotomy or Laminotomy procedures can be performed to remove them. These procedures relieve the pain and symptoms associated with bone spurs. In addition, Laser Spine Institute’s successful procedures are done in an outpatient setting and offer a short recovery time.

Non-surgical treatment for bone spurs causing nerve impingement include: medications such as anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers and pain medications. Cortisone injections can also provide temporary relief. Physical therapy and exercise can strengthen the muscle around the area but typically does not provide permanent relief from the pain.
