What makes a patient a strong candidate for surgery at Laser Spine Institute? Our Cincinnati-based team offers this explanation
Once you have made the decision to pursue minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute, you might find yourself wondering about the candidacy process and whether you might be a candidate for one of our procedures. Because nearly 60 percent of our patients travel to obtain the level of care and service that we are able to provide, we have developed a streamlined patient experience to help walk potential patients through each stage of the experience. Before ever asking patients to travel, we offer a review of their most recent MRI report or CT scan to determine whether they have the conditions that we see and treat on a daily basis.
At Laser Spine Institute we are dedicated to helping people find relief from the symptoms and conditions that plague their quality of life. By treating these conditions through our innovative, minimally invasive procedures, we are able to pinpoint and treat the exact cause of each patient’s pain. By reviewing each patient’s MRI report or CT scan before moving forward with evaluations, we are able to determine whether our procedures would be able to bring you the highest level of relief.

- Facet disease
- Annular tear
- Foraminal stenosis
- Spinal stenosis
- Arthritis of the spine
- Pinched nerve
