Clinical exam room
Laser Spine Institute’s Tampa surgery center features a comfortable consult room and 32 clinical exam rooms on the first floor. Here, you’ll have your initial consultation and all before- and after-surgery appointments. In our exam rooms, you’ll also have a chance to meet with our physicians, who will review your MRI and perform a physical examination before surgery. We encourage you to allow your care partner to accompany you into the exam room so you can both ask questions about what to expect during the procedure and the postoperative recovery period.
Between your appointments, you can grab a bite to eat at our patient café located on the first floor. Relax with your family or care partner, enjoy refreshments available for purchase or surf the internet with our free Wi-Fi. You can also clear your mind in our reflection room located immediately off the patient café.
Spinal diagnostic center
If you have pain in multiple areas, you’ll require additional evaluation at our spinal diagnostic center prior to receiving a surgical order. Some of the diagnostic procedures performed include diagnostic facet injections, selective nerve root blocks and discograms, as well as MRIs and X-rays. The purpose of additional spinal diagnostic testing is to find the location of your pain so our surgeons know where to make the surgical incision.
For some degenerative spine diseases, an MRI that is more than six months old may no longer accurately represent the current state of your spine. For this reason, it may be necessary to take a new MRI so our physicians can accurately diagnose your condition.
Advanced spine motion imaging
Spine motion imaging is a breakthrough technology capable of taking hundreds of X-ray pictures of your spine while you move in a gentle and controlled manner to create a real-time video. Laser Spine Institute Tampa is one of the first facilities in the United States to offer this groundbreaking spinal technology.
On the day of your surgery you will be directed to our before-surgery area on the second floor to meet your surgeon and anesthesiologist. Take this time to ask your surgeon any last-minute questions about your procedure and recovery period.
Laser Spine Institute’s state-of-the-art operating rooms include high-definition magnification and direct visualization imaging equipment, as well as several other advanced tools which allow our surgeons to perform minimally invasive spine surgery through a less than 1-inch incision to avoid the tearing of muscles and tissue surrounding the spine.
After your procedure, Laser Spine Institute’s nursing staff will transfer you to our recovery area, where they’ll monitor your vitals and ensure your comfort as the effects of the anesthesia wear off. Once you are reunited with your care partner, a nurse will explain your recovery guidelines and discharge you from our facility.
