Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive surgery centers located regionally are helping patients from Columbia, Missouri

Pamela's Laser Spine Institute Testimonial

Pamela A., from Columbia, Missouri, experienced chronic low back pain. Like most patients, Pamela knew that living in pain was diminishing her overall quality of life, which is why she chose to seek a second opinion from our expert medical staff.

After being recommended for a minimally invasive procedure, Pamela traveled to one of our regional surgery centers to have it performed. “After much research I discovered Laser Spine Institute to be credible and superior in service,” she said. “This was a very positive journey that I would highly recommend to anyone.”

Like Pamela, we see thousands of patients each week who are coping with the effects of long-lasting pain. We understand that day-to-day activities begin to seem like mountainous tasks. At Laser Spine Institute, we are committed to helping you take back your life. No patient should be forced to live with debilitating pain and symptoms. Our regional surgery centers provide the highest quality of care and service through offering minimally invasive alternatives to traditional open neck or back procedures.

Types of pain

Making the decision to undergo neck or back surgery takes research, consideration and plenty of insight from physicians. The first step in determining whether or not minimally invasive surgery is right for you is being able to recognize your symptoms. The most common symptoms are caused by degenerative conditions associated with the natural aging process, including:

  • Radiating numbness
  • Radiating tingling
  • Radiating pain
  • Burning sensations
  • Localized pain
  • Inability to sit or stand for long periods of time
  • Inability to walk long distances
  • Irregular gate
  • Uneven shoulders
  • Inability to straighten your back without pain

If you are experiencing these or other similar symptoms, Laser Spine Institute may offer minimally invasive procedures to help treat your pain or symptoms. Our highly trained surgeons are skilled in addressing the most common conditions and symptoms that keep patients from living their lives to the fullest. For more information, contact us today.
