Helping patients who travel from Akron, Ohio, find relief
Faith O.’s physicians told her to appreciate that she could still walk and drive with her back pain. Short-term relief wasn’t going to cut it for the low back pain that Faith was experiencing, so she traveled from her home in Akron, Ohio, to Laser Spine Institute for outpatient minimally invasive surgery. “Here at Laser Spine Institute, the hope they offer is designed to be curative, to allow me to enjoy life,” she said. “Even though Laser Spine Institute has many patients, they make you feel like you’re the only one.”
With regional surgery centers located across the United States, Laser Spine Institute is proud to serve patients like Faith every day. Our specialized procedures and skilled surgeons offer patients an unmatched quality of commitment and care during every step of our streamlined patient experience. Our goal is to help you regain your quality of life — without neck or back pain.
Nearly 70 percent of our patients are not local and choose to travel to one of our regional surgery centers. This is because Laser Spine Institute offers the highest standard of care and commitment to quality. Because so many of our patients travel to see us, we have developed a streamlined patient experience to help patients feel comfortable during every step of the journey.
When patients reside too far from one of our regional surgery centers to schedule an in-person consultation, the initial phases of our experience are completed over the phone. We have highly trained Spine Care Consultants who walk patients through every step of the experience, from the first phone conversation to the postoperative appointment. Our Spine Care Consultants will request a copy of your most recent MRI or CT scan from the facility where you had the scan performed. This will assist our medical staff in determining whether or not you are a candidate for one of our procedures.
Once you have been determined a candidate, you will schedule your appointment to come visit us.
