DO I NEED LASER SPINE SURGERY?
A form of minimally invasive surgery, laser spine surgery is an alternative to traditional surgery that uses laser techniques to repair a damage and other corrective procedures. The expert orthopedic surgeons at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine use lasers to create a very small incision at the operation area, instead of traditional surgical instruments such as a scalpel. This highly-concentrated stream of energy, which can be very finely targeted at incredibly specific areas, is then used to remove damaged body tissue by vaporizing it. Laser spine surgery offers many benefits to patients as a solution to their pain. In comparison to other traditional techniques, laser spine surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine offers:
- Less bleeding
- Minimal incisions
- Smaller scars
- Less damage to surrounding tissues
- Faster recovery
Laser spine surgery is an option for people who are suffering from pain and other symptoms of a diagnosed spine condition. The majority of patients who undergo laser spine surgery have exhausted all conservatives treatment and not found relief from their pain.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASER SPINE SURGERY?
Treatment for your spine condition does not always mean you need surgery. At Oasis Orthopedic & Spine, we don’t go straight to recommending a surgery. With any spine condition, it is best to exhaust all non-surgical treatment options before turning to surgery.
If you have not found relief from your symptoms with non-surgical options or if the severity of your symptoms have increased, you may be a candidate for laser spine surgery.
There are many different types of laser spine surgeries. The specific laser spine surgery you need is based on your specific spine condition. Common spine conditions treated by laser spine surgery include:
- Bulging Disc
- Disc Degeneration
- Disc Tear
- Herniated Disc
- Lower Back Pain
- Pinched Nerve
- Spinal Stenosis
If you have exhausted all non-surgical, conservative treatments and have not found lasting relief from your pain, find out if you qualify for laser spine surgery with our candidacy check tool below.
