Find out if you’re a candidate for visiting Laser Spine Institute’s state-of-the-art Tampa surgery center
The first step in determining whether you may be a candidate for one of our minimally invasive procedures is for our medical staff to perform a no-cost review* of your MRI or CT scan. These images will allow us to initially determine whether you are suffering from conditions that Laser Spine Institute is able to treat through our minimally invasive outpatient spine surgery. If you have not received an MRI or CT scan, your first step will be to talk to your primary care doctor about having this imagery taken.
Our goal is to treat the underlying causes of your pain and symptoms, helping our patients to regain their quality of life. Symptoms from spine conditions are usually the result of compression of a spinal nerve by displaced disc material. Laser Spine Institute offers relief through our minimally invasive spine surgery that uses muscle-sparing techniques to treat spinal nerve compression on an outpatient basis.
Conditions treated at Laser Spine Institute
Most neck or back pain can be attributed to compression of the spinal cord and nerve roots. These conditions generally develop through the natural aging process, as the elements that compose the spine begin to degenerate. Some of the most common conditions treated at Laser Spine Institute include:
- Spinal stenosis
- Foraminal stenosis
- Annular tears
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Arthritis of the spine
- Pinched nerves
- Ruptured discs
- Facet disease
The impact of these and similar conditions can be devastating on your quality of life. If you are experiencing pain or symptoms associated with a spine condition, contact Laser Spine Institute. As the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery, we have helped more than 75,000 patients find relief from their neck and back pain. Our outpatient procedures are often the clinically appropriate first choice and provide many advantages versus traditional open neck or back surgery.^
We are pleased to offer a no-cost MRI review* to determine if you may be a candidate for one of our procedures.
Laser Spine Institute’s Relief Confirmation Test
Potential patients who want to find out if minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute can offer them relief may be able to receive our Relief Confirmation Test. A diagnostic procedure known as a selective nerve root block is used to identify the level of the spine where the pain and other symptoms are coming from. If the test provides temporary relief, our physicians can create a targeted surgical plan to address the patient’s symptoms. For more information, ask a member of our team about this offering today.
