Surgery outcomes at Laser Spine Institute in Tampa have put thousands on the path to relief from back pain
All spine surgeries are not created equal. Before opting to undergo any surgery, it is important to understand the risks and benefits associated with the procedure. Traditional open neck and back surgeries often involve long incisions and require a lengthy amount of recovery time. These procedures are generally accompanied by months of postoperative rehabilitation and appointments. Though traditional surgery was once the only option for patients suffering from chronic and severe spine-related pain, there are now other effective options available. Laser Spine Institute offers minimally invasive procedures that act as a successful alternative to traditional open surgery. These procedures utilize advanced technology and medical understanding in order to treat the conditions that cause debilitating symptoms.
As the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery, Laser Spine Institute has helped more than 75,000 patients find relief from chronic pain since 2005. A procedure at Laser Spine institute has many benefits over traditional open surgery, including:
- No lengthy recovery^
- Performed in an outpatient setting
- Less than 1-inch incision
- 81 percent of patients return to work within three months
- 0.55 percent infection rate^, significantly lower than the up to 16 percent of traditional surgery
- 98 patient satisfaction score^
- Patient recommendation score of 98 out of 100
Our minimally invasive procedures have been proven to be just as effective as traditional open neck and back surgery, while also saving our patients time and money in the process. In a peer-reviewed study titled “Surgery without Instrumentation for Spondylolisthesis-Related Stenosis,” researchers describe an experience with a patient who was recommended for a fusion by multiple surgeons, yet was hesitant to have major open surgery. The patient, who was suffering from back pain, leg pain, weakness and numbness, opted for Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive procedure in an outpatient setting, resulting in complete resolution of pain and a quick return to normal physical activity.

At Laser Spine Institute we understand that our patients are looking for effective and long-lasting treatments for their pain and symptoms. In multiple studies analyzing the surgical results of our minimally invasive procedures, researchers found that our patients not only received relief just days postoperatively, but also found that our patients experienced long-term relief from our procedures. Moving beyond the success and comfort, we understand that safety is a high priority, which is why we are dedicated to taking every step possible to ensure that our patients receive the most advanced and effective care.
