Those Suffering With Spinal Problems May Find Relief at Laser Spine Institute
Living with back or neck pain can be more like watching life go by than actually experiencing it. The discomfort from your spinal problems can stop you from doing your favorite activities, from your Saturday pick-up basketball game to your morning walk with the dog. When spinal problems are truly severe, you may even have difficulty sitting or standing for an extended period of time. Some people with back and neck conditions can't even sleep comfortably. If this describes you, it's likely that you've been to the doctor repeatedly and have tried any number of medicines, exercises, and therapies with no lasting relief. But at LSI we may have a solution that will end your spinal problems once and for all: endoscopic laser spine surgery. It's successful for so many of our patients because, unlike pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, and other treatments, it does more than manage symptoms. It treats the root of back and neck pain, which is often pressure on nerves.
That's what causes the pain associated with all of these common spinal problems, which we treat at Laser Spine Institute:
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Bone spurs
- Foraminal stenosis
At LSI, we use a narrow tube -- inserted through a small incision in the skin -- to access the site of the affected nerves. Small tools are fed through the tube, and under the control of our highly trained surgeons, they are used to carefully remove or alter whatever tissue is pressing on the nerve and causing the spinal problems. The results are more than encouraging. More than 85% of our patients feel a reduction in symptoms within three months of surgery, and some of them even report relief before they are off the operating table. To learn more about how this type of procedure can be used to end your spinal problems, contact LSI today. A board certified staff physician will review your MRI or CT scan for free to determine whether or not you're a good candidate for laser spine surgery.
