During a personal consultation with a Laser Spine Institute specialist, you can discuss your specific symptoms and treatment options. You can also learn about the advantages of our minimally invasive spine surgery as compared to traditional open neck or back surgery,^ whether your symptoms could be addressed by our spine surgeons and our medical screening process for patients who may be candidates for surgery.
To get the most out of your consultation, you’ll want to be ready to discuss when your symptoms started, which parts of your body are affected and whether any particular activities increase or decrease the severity of your discomfort. The specialist will also review your recent MRI. If you have already tried therapies such as pain medications, prescribed exercises, therapeutic massage, chiropractic manipulation or other nonsurgical approaches, you can discuss the results.
