When patients living with acute back pain demand immediately relief, they may seek out advanced treatment methods such as laser spine surgery. But is this truly the best course of action? The term “laser spine surgery” suggests a quick and virtually painless procedure. But NJSS understands that this procedure ultimately fails to address the individual needs of each patient. While laser spine surgery may eventually prove a viable option, the NJSS team has a broad swath of minimally invasive techniques that will prove more beneficial for a patient’s long-term recovery.
At New Jersey Spine Specialists, the accomplished team of doctors dedicates the practice to alleviating neck and back pain using the least invasive techniques. More importantly, we tailor our suggested treatments to fit with each patient’s case. Our ultimate goal is eliminate each patient’s back pain while drastically reducing recovery times. Laser spine surgery employs microsurgical techniques using a guided laser. This method grants doctors the ability to identify and then administer treatments for a comprehensive range of debilitating spine conditions. However, many doctors still remain unsure whether laser spine surgery outweighs minimally invasive surgery. Regardless, spine surgeons may leverage laser spine surgery in conjunction with minimally invasive surgery.
While laser spine surgery can ease back pain, NJSS finds that conservative methods often yield better results with quicker recovery times. Depending on each patient’s case, the NJSS team may opt out of laser spine surgery and elect for less-invasive solutions to spinal care. But when surgery becomes the only viable solution, our spine surgeons deploy the most advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedures to address a complete range of conditions that include disc herniation, bone spurs, spinal stenosis, spinal scoliosis, kyphosis, bulging discs, osteomyelitis, and sciatica. We understand how pain can impact lives, which is why every patient will receive coordinated care from the initial consultation to the final post-surgery follow-up.
