Learn the advantages of minimally invasive vs. open back surgery as explained by the spine health experts at Laser Spine Institute

While conducting your research on the types of treatment options available, you may find yourself noticing that all surgery options are not necessarily created equal. Before agreeing to any surgery, it is important to understand what risks and benefits may be associated with the procedure. Laser Spine Institute offers minimally invasive procedures as an effective alternative to traditional open neck or back surgery.

Traditional Surgery

Traditionally, patients suffering from lasting severe neck or back pain were recommended open procedures as the only available option. These procedures are extremely invasive and typically include:

  • 2- to 5- day hospital stay
  • Large incision
  • Damage caused by unnecessary cutting and tearing of surrounding muscles
  • A long recovery
  • Up to 16 percent infection rate
