About us — recapture your life with our minimally invasive spine surgery
Laser Spine Institute is the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery for a reason — we help our patients find lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain so they can get back to the lives they deserve.
We understand the burden chronic pain can place on your personal and professional life. Many times, our patients have endured years of continual and debilitating pain, finding little or no relief in conservative methods of pain management, such as chiropractic care and steroid injections. Our goal is to meet patients where they are in their journey and help them regain their quality of life through our minimally invasive spine procedures.
We are passionate about helping our patients. Our commitment to quality and exceptional patient care has earned Laser Spine Institute continual recognition from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation.
This commitment and passion are evident at each of our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery centers, located near major cities throughout the nation. In fact, when you visit one of our facilities, you will recognize what we stand for — a quality patient experience in a compassionate environment.
Our special blend of care embodies our mission at Laser Spine Institute. It begins with our exceptional patient care, extends to our dedicated teammates and comes full circle in our compassion for our community.

Minimally invasive spine surgery
Our minimally invasive spine surgery offers a safer and effective alternative to traditional open neck or back surgery.^ Most of our procedures require a less than 1-inch incision and use muscle-sparing techniques. For you, that means less recovery time than traditional surgery^ and minimal scarring.
The procedure begins with a skilled surgeon making an incision and inserting a series of dilating tubes into the area of your condition. Once the initial tube is in place, a series of tubes, increasing in size, is placed over the first tube. This process creates an opening to the spine and spares the surrounding muscle tissue. Once the final tube is in place, all other tubes are removed. Through this final tube, the surgeon will insert the surgical instruments to remove the bone, ligament or tissue that is compressing the nerve and causing your chronic pain and symptoms.
To ensure the constant health and safety of our patients, the anesthesia provider remains in the surgical room to monitor the patient’s vital signs and to administer medication and intravenous fluids.
All of our minimally invasive surgeries are performed in an outpatient setting at our ambulatory medical facilities.
