Procedures to relieve neck and back pain for Cincinnati-area patients offered by Laser Spine Institute

Since 2005, Laser Spine Institute has been helping people get back to the lives they love through minimally invasive spine surgery. We understand that living with debilitating symptoms can be devastating to your quality of life. Our highly skilled and expert surgeons are dedicated to helping as many patients as possible through our minimally invasive surgery. To date, we have helped more than 75,000 people find relief from chronic neck and back pain.

To best serve the needs of our patients, our expert surgeons in Cincinnati specialize in both minimally invasive decompression procedures and minimally invasive stabilization procedures. These types of procedures are a successful and effective alternative to traditional open neck and back surgery performed in a hospital setting. In fact, our minimally invasive spine surgery is often the clinically appropriate first choice.

The major difference between minimally invasive decompression and minimally invasive stabilization surgery is that decompression only removes part of the diseased disc or vertebrae to decompress the impacted nerve in the spinal canal, and stabilization removes the entire disc or vertebrae to decompress the nerve and then inserts an implant into the now empty space in the spine for stabilization.

Minimally invasive decompression procedures

Our surgeons in our Cincinnati center specialize in minimally invasive decompression procedures that are used to help treat some of the most commonly debilitating pain and symptoms. Performed through less than a 1-inch incision, these procedures greatly reduce the overall recovery time associated with the surgery. The minimally invasive decompression procedures performed at our Cincinnati facility include laminotomy, foraminotomy, discectomy and facet thermal ablation.

These procedures are performed with state-of-the-art equipment and allow our skilled surgeons to address the conditions that are causing the patient’s pain, rather than simply the conditions seen on an MRI. Some of the most common conditions treated by these procedures are:

  • Sciatica
  • Foraminal stenosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Annular tear
  • Bulging disc
  • Pinched nerve
  • Arthritis of the spine

Minimally invasive stabilization procedures

Though many patients suffer from the common conditions treated by our minimally invasive decompression procedures, some suffer from conditions causing instability and requiring further support and stabilization from a spinal surgery. At Laser Spine Institute we are dedicated to helping these patients find relief without having to undergo the time-consuming and invasive procedures traditionally offered within a hospital setting.

Laser Spine Institute’s Cincinnati center specializes in numerous minimally invasive stabilization procedures used to treat a variety of devastating conditions and accompanying symptoms. The minimally invasive stabilization procedures offered at our Cincinnati center include anterior cervical discectomy fusion, cervical disc replacement and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion. These procedures are able to treat a number of conditions such as:

  • Pinched nerve
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Arthritis of the spine
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Bone spurs

After your initial consultation and MRI review, one of our physicians will determine your personalized plan of action and determine if you are a candidate for one of these procedures. If you are suffering from these or other conditions, do not wait to find the relief that you deserve.
