LASER SPINE SURGERY
Laser spine surgery is an innovative surgical option for patients who suffer from a variety of spinal conditions.
Laser spine surgery is a form of minimally-invasive surgery, and provides an alternative to traditional surgery. Laser surgical techniques offer patients solutions to their spinal pain with faster recovery times, so that you’re able to get back to living your normal life.
IS LASER SPINE SURGERY RIGHT FOR ME?
Laser spine surgery uses lasers, or light beams, to create incisions into the affected area, instead of traditional surgical instruments. Laser surgery eliminates the need for surgeons to use large incisions or move surrounding tissue during the surgery, which allows for an easier and speedier recovery.
Laser spine surgery is often recommended for patients who have chronic or worsening pain.
Many conditions benefit from laser surgery including:
- Spinal stenosis
- Facet joint disease
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Spinal bone spurs
Laser spine surgery is designed to minimize damage to surrounding tissues, which reduces the pain and amount of time spent for patients to recover.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASER SPINE SURGERY?
All surgery, no matter how minimally invasive, comes with some degree of risk. You should alway consult with your physician about your condition and treating your pain.
Laser spine surgery techniques allow surgeons to treat the affected area of your spine without the risk that comes with traditional open back surgery, and without altering your spine’s stability.
