Searching for options to treat your chronic neck or back pain can sometimes be overwhelming. There are several treatment options available, and you want to be sure that you are making the best choice for your needs.
At Laser Spine Institute, we believe in providing patient-centered care by empowering our patients with knowledge about their spinal condition and educating them on the treatment options available. Understanding the anatomical reason for your pain and the options available to find relief will help eliminate some of the fear and confusion that often accompanies chronic neck and back pain.
As you research your treatment options, consider the following reasons why Laser Spine Institute stands out as the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery to help alleviate chronic neck and back pain.

Choosing Laser Spine Institute for your treatment means choosing a more precise spinal surgery. You will experience less scarring from our minimally invasive spine surgery and less recovery time* because our procedures do not cut through surrounding muscle tissues.
Lower risk than standard open neck or open back surgery
Our minimally invasive spine surgery provides an alternative to the traditional open neck or open back surgery and conservative treatments and therapies. Part of your preoperative process is to pinpoint the location of your pain through a spinal test. Once we have located your pain, we can help you find relief by offering a minimally invasive procedure specific to your spine condition.
Please review this comparison between our minimally invasive spine surgery and traditional open back surgery:
|Hospital stay||Outpatient||2-5 days|
|Infection rate||0.41 percent||Up to 19 percent|
|Muscle disruption||Small incision, muscle sparing, muscles separated||Muscles cut, torn|
Our minimally invasive spine surgery is often the clinically appropriate first choice and provides many advantages versus open neck or back surgery.
Streamlined patient experience
Our streamlined patient experience will help you recapture your quality of life faster than the traditional recovery period associated with open back surgery.
