Minimally Invasive Treatments
Typical surgical treatments involve massively invasive surgery, requiring many months of recuperation and a less than 50 percent chance of success.
Laser Spine Institute offers minimally invasive procedures 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.

Nonsurgical, conservative treatments
Nonsurgical 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 muscles around the area but typically do not provide permanent pain relief.
Traditional bone spur treatments
The most unfortunate problem with today’s conventional back surgery is dealing with lengthy hospital stays and painful recoveries. Fortunately, Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive bone spurs treatment is performed on an outpatient basis and typically requires a less arduous rehabilitation than open neck or back surgery. The time spent in the facility will include preoperative testing, surgery, postoperative consultation and more.
