Laser Back Surgery at Laser Spine Institute: Offering New Ways to Get Your Life Back
One of the most desirable benefits of laser back surgery is the fact that the surgery, as well as the recovery time, take a fraction of the time of traditional surgery. For example, invasive back surgeries require hospital admission, general anesthesia, and months of recuperation. By contrast, laser back surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be done in about 45-60 minutes, and our patients are up and walking within an hour or two.
As the largest spine surgery center in the world, Laser Spine Institute has streamlined spine surgery to a 5-day process. In less than a week, thousands of our patients who were once suffering from debilitating spine disorders have been relieved of their pain, sometimes immediately after our procedure.
LSI’s comprehensive 5-day process ensures that we properly diagnose your condition and provide you with world-class care. Here is how our laser back surgery process works:
- Day One- new patient evaluation, complete physical, MRI and/or X-rays, EKG, and lab work
- Day Two- MRI discussion with your surgeon and, if ordered, diagnostic injections
- Day Three- Anesthesia discussion and outpatient laser back surgery
- Day Four- Physical therapy and post-operative visit>
- Day Five- Physical therapy and release from LSI to begin your new life
Many of our patients tell us that walking out of our medical facility in 5 days -already feeling better- is an amazing experience. During this short time, LSI surgeons are able to perform minimally invasive endoscopic procedures that free trapped nerves from bulging discs, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, and many other spine conditions. This in turn allows our patients to return home and get their life back.
