Ridge's Laser Spine Institute Testimonial

Ridge O. traveled from Ocala, Florida, to Laser Spine Institute for his streamlined patient experience after he learned minimally invasive back surgery would be his best option for pain relief. “I can’t describe how wonderful the whole experience was,” he said. “Everyone was so kind and caring. Thank God for Laser Spine Institute.”

Choosing the right surgery center is difficult, but Ridge was happy he chose the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery. Laser Spine Institute has surgery center locations nationwide. Since the decision to undergo back surgery is very hard to make — even if your chronic neck and back pain threatens to diminish your quality of life — we’re here to help. Many patients are surprised to learn that very small degenerative conditions to the spine can lead to larger problems that may require back surgery.

A more effective option for relief

At Laser Spine Institute, we specialize in minimally invasive procedures that utilize the benefits of state-of-the-art technology. This type of minimally invasive spine surgery is ideal for patients who are unable to find relief through conservative treatments, but who are concerned about the risks of a traditional open spine procedure. The procedures offered at our surgery centers are performed through small incisions.

Degenerative conditions like a herniated disc, a bulging disc, bone spurs and osteoarthritis can pinch nerves in the spinal column and cause a variety of painful symptoms, including:

  • Radiating pain
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Abnormal stiffness
  • Tingling
  • Loss of mobility

Minimally invasive spine surgery performed at Laser Spine Institute is aimed at relieving these symptoms, which are caused by neural compression. When any spinal condition causes unusual pressure on any of the surrounding nerves in the spine, it can translate into pain and interrupted nerve signals throughout the body. Our minimally invasive procedures seek to decompress nerves in an effort to help you find relief from neck or back pain.

Speak with industry experts

Remember, back surgery should not be considered unless conservative treatment options, such as pain medication, epidural steroid injections and physical therapy, have not sufficed. These will not prove effective for every patient and, if this is the case, an orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon at Laser Spine Institute is ready to talk to you about minimally invasive surgery options.
