Laser Spine Surgery in CLIFTON, NJ
OASIS ORTHOPEDIC & SPINE OFFERS LASER SPINE SURGERY IN CLIFTON, NJ.
Laser spine surgery is an approach to back surgery that is typically used in situations of nerve compression such as scar tissue on or near the spine, a herniated disc, or spinal stenosis. When a soft tissue near the spinal cord or nerves of the back compresses a nerve, this can result in significant acute or chronic spine conditions. If all non-surgical treatment options have been exhausted, or if your condition is deemed severe, your Oasis orthopedic and spine specialist may recommend a Laser Spine Surgery to decompress the nerve.
