What makes Laser Spine Institute special, though, and what can you expect from your treatment?

Technological advances in medicine

In recent years, America has seen an unprecedented rise in the popularity of outpatient clinics. As modern medicine has advanced, many procedures have become streamlined to the point of not requiring a traditional hospital setting for success. Procedures like wisdom tooth extraction, cosmetic surgery and Lasik eye surgery are all done every day with great success outside of hospitals. Likewise, at Laser Spine Institute, we perform many of the same spinal treatments in an outpatient setting that previously required traditional open back surgery and hospitalization.

Decompression treatment

For example, one of the most common conditions that can lead to neck or back pain is spine compression. If you experience severe pain from spine compression and you have exhausted doctor recommended conservative treatment, do not automatically resort to a highly invasive open spine surgery. Instead consider the minimally invasive decompression options from Laser Spine Institute. Treatment from Laser Spine Institute usually entails:

  • An initial evaluation, complete with a review of your medical history, a physical examination and any other tests necessary to increase the effectiveness of the procedure.
  • A meeting with one of our surgeons to discuss your MRI or CT scan and receive diagnostic injections, if necessary, to pinpoint the source of the spine pain.
  • A meeting with a surgeon on the day of the procedure to discuss the specific steps of the treatment.
  • The procedure is performed and the nerve is decompressed. The piece of tissue compressing the nerve is carefully removed using minimally invasive techniques that avoid muscle tearing and scar tissue.
  • You leave the facility the very same day with your Care Partner.
  • Over the next couple of days, you are educated on proper postsurgical care and then receive a final consultation. Physical therapy may be recommended.
