Understanding Laser Spine Surgery

Laser spine surgery is a type of minimally invasive spinal surgery that allows for smaller incisions than standard open back surgery. Laser spine surgery allows for the precise vaporization of unwanted tissue such as a herniated disc. Minimally invasive laser surgery by the doctors at The Spine Hospital of Louisiana achieves results that are quicker, safer, and require less recover time than the traditional surgery. Patients go home the same day and their small incisions are covered with a small bandage or band-aid.

Am I an Ideal candidate for Laser Spine Surgery?

At The Spine Hospital of Louisiana, our spine specialists view surgery as a last-resort option. However, if a patient is experiencing no relief from conservative therapies, our physician may recommend laser spine surgery to alleviate your pain. Laser spine surgery is most helpful for lumbar stenosis or lumbar herniated discs. It is also used for laser rhizotomies for the treatment of low back pain. Likewise, it can be used for the same issues in the cervical spine (neck.) Laser surgery isn't right for everyone. Fortunately, the doctors at The Spine Hospital of Louisiana can customize the perfect surgical plan for you with or without the laser.

Recovery from laser spine surgery is different for every patient.
