Minimally invasive spine surgery — find the treatment that’s right for you
If you suffer from chronic neck or back pain due to a spine condition, you have most likely been introduced to several treatment options available for your condition. If you are like most of our patients, you have tried several forms of treatment to relieve your neck or back pain, with only temporary results.
At Laser Spine Institute, we understand the frustration that you’ve experienced trying to find a lasting treatment for your spine condition. We have designed our minimally invasive spine surgery to not simply be a method of temporary relief, but rather a method of treatment that gets to the source of your pain. Our advanced procedures and outcomes have labeled Laser Spine Institute as the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery.
We are confident that we can help you find a treatment that helps alleviate your chronic pain. Please take a moment to read through the procedures we offer. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Care team.
Treatment options at Laser Spine Institute
We have two categories of treatments available: minimally invasive decompression (MID) procedures and minimally invasive stabilization (MIS) procedures. Our consultants will consider your candidacy for one of our procedures based on your spine condition and medical history.
Minimally invasive decompression surgery
Our MID procedures offer a minimally invasive alternative to open neck or open back surgery. The procedure is accomplished by creating a less than 1-inch incision* at the site of the spine condition and then inserting a series of tubes. Each tube increases in size and is placed one over the other. The surgery is performed through the final tube, allowing our surgeon to avoid disrupting the surrounding muscle tissues. This means that you will have less scarring and a shorter recovery time+ because your surrounding muscles are not being cut.

If you have any questions regarding your candidacy for one of our minimally invasive procedures, please contact our Spine Care Consultants to review your MRI or CT scan and your medical history.
Minimally invasive stabilization surgery
Our MIS procedures offer a lower risk and highly effective alternative to traditional back fusion surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon will remove the disc that is the source of your pain and replace it with an implant or bone to provide immediate stability and relief from pain. In some cases, additional implants may be needed for further stabilization of the spine.
