laser spine surgery

For over 25 years, the spinal specialists at Virginia Spine Institute have treated a diverse range of spinal conditions using the safest, most effective treatment option available. Laser Spine Surgery provides a minimally invasive surgical technique that aims to minimize tissue disruption and relieve pain quickly.

WHAT IS LASER SPINE SURGERY?

Lasers have been utilized as a tool in spine surgery since the 1980s and continues to be one of many surgical options to treat spinal conditions depending on the location and severity of a patient’s problem.

Laser spine surgery utilizes a focused beam of light (laser technology) to remove soft tissues over the spine through a small incision. This is most commonly done to treat herniated or ruptured discs, removing the damaged portion of the disc to reduce pain.
