Why Endoscopic Laser Spine Surgery for Back Pain?

Endoscopic laser spine surgery is a great alternative to reduce or eliminate back pain. Many of our patients have tried pain medication, open spine surgery, yoga, therapy, exercise, etc. Whether you’ve tried other treatments and failed, or are looking at this surgery as your first option, laser spine surgery offers a lot of benefits.

Many traditional treatments have a long window of treatment, waiting for results, with increased risks of infection from treatment and medication complications. Laser spine surgery is an outpatient procedure where the patient is up and walking almost immediately after the procedure.

Because the incisions are small enough to be covered with a Band Aid, there is less risk of infection, less blood loss and reduced pain involved with the procedure. Reduced pain during the procedure means less pain medication.  There is no hospitalization with most patients, and you can expect to be back at work and normal activities within days.
