Laser Spine Surgery

Isn't technology amazing? What they can do now with lasers just floors me. Many surgeries, including many forms of laser spine surgeries, can now be performed in a minimally invasive procedure that hardly effects the surrounding tissues. This means less pain, less bleeding, and faster healing times.

These minimal invasive procedures can treat a variety of issues that cause severe back pain. Sometimes, small amounts of bone is removed to relieve nerve compression. In other instances, a partial disc removal is necessary to relieve spinal nerve compression. In more severe cases, laser spinal surgery is used to fuse two or more spinal segments to relieve pain caused by motion.

If you suffer from chronic back pain and think you might be a good candidate for this type of procedure, speak with your doctor about the options.
