Laser Spine Institute describes surgery outcomes at our Cincinnati surgery center for patients considering our treatments
Deciding to undergo a surgical procedure of any kind is no easy feat. Before opting into a surgery, it is important to understand all of the associated benefits, risks and outcomes. Traditionally, open back surgery performed in a hospital setting is accompanied with a large invasive incision. This can mean long and tedious recovery times, as well as elevated associated risks. Historically, these invasive procedures were the only alternative to living a life of back pain. With the induction of new medicine and technology, however, centers like Laser Spine Institute are able to offer successful and effective minimally invasive alternatives to the traditionally invasive procedures. In fact, our minimally invasive spine surgery is often the clinically appropriate first choice and provides many advantages versus open neck or back surgery.
Since 2005, Laser Spine Institute has performed more than 75,000 spine surgeries, making us the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery. Our procedures offer a variety of benefits* compared to traditional open neck or back surgery, including:
- Be up and walking within hours of surgery
- Return to daily activities sooner^
- Outpatient procedures
- Small incision, generally less than 1-inch
- 81 percent of patients are back to work within 3 months
- 0.55 percent infection rate,^ as opposed to the up to 16 percent of traditional surgery
A study of our patients was performed over an extended period of time postoperatively. During the study, the researchers found that our patients found not only immediate relief after surgery but also lasting relief from the chronic pain and symptoms that plagued them preoperatively.
At Laser Spine Institute we know that our patients are looking for a long-term solution to their pain, which is why we are dedicated to offering only the most effective and successful procedures available. We are devoted to making sure that our patients receive the highest level of care and service available at each of our centers, located regionally throughout the U.S.
