Laser Spine Surgery in Brooklyn, NY

Oasis Orthopedic & Spine offers Laser Spine Surgery in Brooklyn, NY.

When the nerves in your spinal cord and back are compressed or otherwise impeded, you could experience acute and/or chronic pain that can start in your back and radiate through your extremities. If you are suffering from a spine condition such as nerve compression from scar tissue on or near the spine, a herniated disc, or spinal stenosis (among many more), you could be a candidate for a Laser Spine Surgery.

What Happens During a Laser Spine Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Brooklyn, NY?

Traditional open spine surgery uses large incisions to access the intended area. This means that soft tissues like muscle and ligaments are cut or moved so the surgeon can get to the surgical site of the spine. From there, the orthopedic surgeon will correct the damage according to your specific condition such as removing injured disc materials with a small incisor tool. This traditional open back approach involves more scarring, more bleeding, and a longer recovery period. Thanks to advancements in medical technology and techniques, many of the spine conditions treated by a traditional open back surgery can now be treated by Laser Spine Surgery. The orthopedic surgeons at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Brooklyn, NY prefer Laser Spine Surgery over traditional back surgery because it benefits the patients in many ways including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less blood loss
  • Reduced risk of muscle damage
  • Reduced risk of infection and
  • Reduced risk of postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery from surgery
  • Less rehabilitation required

Laser Spine Surgery is a less invasive treatment method that uses a laser to vaporize the material that is compressing the spinal nerve, thus releasing pressure and pain. The spine surgery laser device at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Brooklyn, NY is an advanced piece of technology used by our orthopedic surgeons to ensure the best results possible for our patients.
