What Exactly Defines Laser Spine Surgery?

Laser surgery, which uses light beams to create incisions instead of surgical instruments, is often a good choice for chronic pain cases where fusion (the surgical joining of two or more segments of bones) is not the recommended treatment. The skin and muscle tissues need to be moved away from the spine to expose the problem areas when regular spinal surgery is performed. However, laser surgery eliminates the need for incisions and the need to manipulate or move surrounding tissue.

Our Approach to Minimally Invasive Laser Spine Surgery

Our team of spinal specialists will carefully assess your health condition to determine whether minimal laser spine surgery is the right treatment for you. At NJSO, our doctors always start with conservative treatment options before we recommend surgery. If conservative treatment plans don’t work, then we use minimally invasive spine surgery to ease your pain and help you get back to the life you once enjoyed.

Laser Spine Surgery Qualifications & Treatments

Laser spine surgery is an option if conservative methods, like physical therapy and steroid injections, have failed to treat a long list of spinal conditions. Laser surgery can help with many spinal conditions, including spinal and foraminal stenosis, sciatica, facet joint disease, bulging or herniated discs, pinched nerves and scar tissue formation. In the neck, laser surgery can be used to help with conditions like bulging or torn cervical discs, herniated discs and brachial neuritis.

What Makes Us Different?

We understand the significant negative impact back or neck pain could have on quality of life. At NJ Spine and Ortho, our goal is to get our patients back to enjoying life using minimally invasive techniques that involve the use of tiny incisions and muscle sparing methods to treat the spinal problem. There is a big difference between operating through a 1/2 inch incision and operating through a 5 inch incision. The major differences include:

Minimally Invasive Surgery

1/2 inch incision

No muscles cut

Same day discharge (majority of cases)

Quick recovery (4-6 weeks most cases)

Minimal post-op pain

Minimal blood loss

<1 % infection rate

Minimal scarring

Open Spine Surgery

4-5 inch incision

Muscles are cut and damaged

5-7 day hospital stay

>6 month recovery in most cases

Severe post-op pain

Increased blood loss

As high as 10-15% infection rate

Large scar

Doctors You Can Count On
