Tamiami Spine Surgeon

Spine Surgeon/Back Doctor in Tamiami

If you’ve been suffering from back pain, then you are familiar with how spinal injuries prevent you from experiencing a full life. Everyday actions become problematic to accomplish without the full function of our backs, and numerous conditions can impact the spine. Strain, injuries, and even diseases can lead to severe back pain. Spine conditions can be seriously debilitating without treatment. Treatment for these conditions can bring about life-changing improvements to your quality of life.

Surgical and non-surgical treatments require extensive knowledge and skill, and surgical treatments require great precision to accomplish. Surgery is an intricate process, and the results of surgery often require a lot of care afterward. For example, patients will have to make sure their incision wound stays clean, and they’ll have to limit their movement. Laser spine surgery dramatically reduces the size of the incisions and the required healing time. The doctors at Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery are experts at laser surgery and minimally invasive techniques.

Is Laser Spine Surgery Right for You?

Scalpels or other surgical tools are used during regular spine surgeries to make incisions. After the incision is made, to reach the problem areas of the spine, the surgeon will manipulate the surrounding muscle tissue. Laser spine surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates these aspects of regular surgery. As a result, laser surgery typically comes with the following benefits:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Finer precision
  • Longer lasting results

Using advanced technology and specialized equipment, minimally invasive surgeries can treat many orthopedic problems. Instead of using typical surgical equipment, laser surgery employs light beams to make incisions. Patients who suffer from chronic pain and aren’t experiencing relief using other methods are usually suitable candidates for laser surgery. If many incisions are necessary or if multiple vertebrae are involved, laser surgery may not be the best treatment option.
