Laser Spine Surgery Quick Facts

How it Works:

  • Small, under-1-inch incision is made
  • Affected disc material is removed using a special laser
  • Doctors use a small microscope for better visualization as the laser is used to remove the disc material
  • Patients spend the night for a quick recovery,
  • Patients typically resume normal activities within a matter of days

Typical Conditions:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Pinched nerve
  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Sciatica

Minimally-invasive, cost-effective, and free of painful post-op recovery side-effects.

Recovery Time*

4-6 weeks

* All recovery periods vary depending on the person or severity of the condition.

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
  • Sciatica
  • 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.
