Comparing the Costs of Open Back Surgery vs. Laser Spine Surgery

In an ideal world, “cost-prohibitive” and “necessary surgery” would never appear in the same sentence. Nevertheless, the expense associated with spine surgery can give a patient pause. Most back problems will only get worse over time, so the longer you wait, the longer you are prolonging your own pain.

If cost is an issue, you and your doctor should thoroughly examine your treatment options. If you are a good candidate for minimally invasive back surgery, you will find it is preferable over traditional open back surgery. One advantage of minimally invasive surgery is that it is usually more affordable than traditional back surgery.

Types of minimally invasive back surgery include nerve stimulation, endoscopic spine surgery, stem cell therapy and laser spine surgery, such as the eDiscSculptTM technique.

The eDiscSculpt technique developed by Dr. Sukdeb Datta gives patients a world of benefits for far less than the cost of open back surgery, which can become extremely expensive. This outpatient procedure requires minimal post-surgery downtime, as well.
