NJ Laser Spine Surgery

Laser spine surgery is at the forefront of the treatment of common spine conditions. During this minimally invasive procedure, doctors remove excess tissue using lasers while viewing the spine using an endoscopic camera. If necessary, other tools can be inserted into the spine as well.

Most patients with routine spine conditions are candidates for laser spine surgery. Examples of eligible conditions include herniated discs, bulging discs, bone spurs, and spinal arthritis. Certain rare and serious conditions, such as kyphosis and spinal tumors, must be treated with traditional spine surgery.

Why Laser Spine Surgery?

This procedure has dramatic advantages over traditional spine surgery, and has transformed spine surgery from a major procedure to one that it much more manageable; patients enjoy better overall outcomes. Key features include:

  • Performed in an outpatient setting
  • Performed under local, not general, anesthesia
  • No large scar
  • Lower risk of infection and bleeding
  • Only about 1/4 the recovery time

Laser spine patients usually find that their symptoms are relieved as the procedure takes place, and return home pain-free. There is some recovery time; patients will generally wait about a week before returning to work, assuming they don't have a physically strenuous job. Shortly after surgery, patients start physical therapy, which helps to improve posture, increase flexibility, and strengthen the back and core, helping to prevent future flare-ups. After 6 weeks, patients make a full recovery and can return to activities such as exercise.

While laser surgery is the best choice for most patients who need spine surgery, it's not right for everyone; many people with common spine conditions can be effectively treated without resorting to surgery. Meeting with a doctor you trust can help you determine whether or not the procedure is right for you.
