Laser Spine Institute
Patients now have more options for back surgery than just traditional open back surgery. At Laser Spine Institute, we offer minimally invasive spine surgery that is a safer and effective alternative to traditional open back procedures^. Unlike traditional open back surgery that involves a high risk of infection and excessive blood loss due to the large incision made in the back, our minimally invasive procedures are performed using muscle-sparing techniques.
Because of the minimally invasive nature of our procedures, our patients can experience a shorter recovery time^ and a lower risk of complications like infection than patients who undergo traditional open back surgery.
If you’d like to learn more and find out if you are a potential candidate for one of our procedures, reach out to our dedicated team today and ask for your no-cost MRI review.*
