What Happens During a Laser Spine Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Jersey City, NJ?
Laser Spine Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where your orthopedic surgeon will use a small incision, less that one inch, to access the necessary area of the spine. This method of incision produces less scarring and minimal blood loss during surgery.
Through this incision, your orthopedic surgeon will remove the damaged material causing your pain using a laser beam. The laser, rather than a surgical instrument heats and vaporizes the material causing you pain. In most cases, this is a soft tissue such as a herniated disc, that is pressing on a nearby nerve. By vaporizing the damaged material, the surgeon is releasing the pressure on the nerve.
If you have a spine condition that is causing you pain and all non-surgical treatment options have been exhausted, your Oasis orthopedic and spine specialist may recommend a Laser Spine Surgery.
