Laser Spine Treatment In NYC

Do you have back problems? At one time, this may simply have been something your doctor told you to live with, but that's not necessarily true anymore. Today, laser spine treatment NYC can take care of many problems with relative ease that once required very invasive surgery, lots of downtime, and an extended recovery.

Laser spine treatment NYC can greatly alleviate the pain caused by chronic problems like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, damage done by spinal arthritis, or problems with pinched nerves. Laser spine surgery is still definitely surgery, to be sure, but because the "scalpel" used is the laser beam, there's much less bleeding involved with the procedure, and the surgery can generally be done through small incisions that take much less time to heal. In fact, many patients can have spine treatment at the center and go home the same day. Many procedures can even be done with local anesthesia for an even faster and less invasive experience.

Make no mistake, though. Despite the obvious benefits these less invasive procedures promise, laser spine treatment NYC must be done by experienced surgeons to be safe and effective. While laser treatments are indeed less invasive than those done through traditional surgical techniques, they can be just as dangerous in the wrong hands. For that, you need a qualified surgeon to do these treatments. What should you look for in such a surgeon?

  • He or she is board certified

It is absolutely imperative that the surgeon who performs your laser procedures is board certified.

One of the best laser spine treatment doctors in New York City is Dr. Sukdeb Datta MD, DABPM, FIPP, DABIPP. He is currently Medical Director of the Datta Endoscopic Back Surgery & Pain Center in New York City and has a background in pain management, having served as the Director of the Interventional Pain Management Program at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He was also Associate Professor at the Department of Anesthesiology for Vanderbilt University Medical School in Nashville.

  • He or she has a stellar record

Check with New York State's medical board. Has the surgeon you're considering ever had any disciplinary action or sanction taken against him or her? If so, look for another doctor.

  • He or she comes highly recommended by patients and professionals alike

If the doctor you're considering for laser spine treatment NYC comes highly recommended by patients and other professionals, it's a good bet that he or she is a good choice to perform your treatment, too. You should still check to make sure that your doctor has the requisite background and education, stellar reputation, etc., with no sanctions against him or her, but if your surgeon comes highly recommended, you can be pretty sure that you're in good hands.

  • He or she has an excellent "bedside manner"

Of course you want to be in excellent hands when you have laser spine treatment NYC performed, but it's also important that you feel comfortable with the surgeon you choose. Does he or she treat you with respect? Are all of your questions answered during your consultations? Do you feel rushed or at all disregarded when you try to get your questions answered? If you feel comfortable with the surgeon you're considering and he or she truly addresses your concerns and addresses each of them with patience and careful consideration, he or she is probably a good choice, assuming all of the other previously discussed qualifications are in place, as well.
