Groundbreaking back and neck pain treatment from Laser Spine Institute

Since so many of us — the vast majority of adults, in fact — will experience or have experienced significant neck or back pain in their lower and upper back, it’s reasonable to assume the most people know how debilitating and even emotionally unhealthy it can be. The pain itself, let alone the decreased mobility or loss of sensation that might accompany it, can render you unable to work, unable to play with your kids, unable to go fishing or play golf or build birdhouses — whatever your hobby might be.

It might even make getting out of bed difficult, if for no other reason than the anticipation of yet another day of not being able to do the things you need and want to do. It’s important to not give up on finding effective treatment. You might finally find relief from your chronic neck or back pain by turning to Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive spine surgery.

Disadvantages of traditional back surgery

At Laser Spine Institute, we employ renowned orthopedic surgeons, all of whom are experienced in performing our minimally invasive procedures that differ from traditional open spine surgeries in terms of:

  • Invasiveness — Whereas open spine surgery requires a large incision and the disruption of muscle, our procedures require small incisions and spare musculature from disruption.
  • Hospitalization and recovery time — Because open spine surgery is so invasive, it requires hospitalization and then a long period of recovery. Patients who undergo minimally invasive spine procedures at Laser Spine Institute, however, often are able to leave our outpatient surgery centers within a few hours of their procedures and 81 percent return to work within three months.
  • Risk — Up to 19 percent of patients who undergo open spine surgery develop infections. In contrast, only 0.49 percent of Laser Spine Institute’s patients develop infections.

Minimally invasive alternative

At Laser Spine Institute, we provide our minimally invasive spine surgery patients with a streamlined experience, allowing them to avoid hospital-related costs and return to their lives and the things they enjoy as quickly as possible. We offer minimally invasive decompression and stabilization procedures to treat a wide range of spinal conditions.

If your chronic neck and back pain has disrupted your everyday life and your physician has recommended open spine surgery, do not immediately submit to a highly invasive, traditional open spine surgery. Instead, contact us to schedule a review of your MRI report or CT scan to determine if you’re a candidate for one of our state-of-the-art procedures.
