Are You a Candidate for Laser Spine Institute in Philadelphia?
If you are suffering from neck or back pain and have exhausted conservative treatment options, you may be exploring the possibility of minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute. To help you find out if you are a potential candidate, our dedicated team offers a no-cost review* of your MRI or CT scan. This allows them to best determine whether your pain is being caused by one or more of the conditions that we see and treat on a daily basis. If you do not have an MRI or CT scan, the first step is to talk to your doctor about receiving images. This will assist in determining the cause of your chronic or severe pain.
At Laser Spine Institute our overall goal is to treat the underlying cause of each patient’s pain and symptoms. Rather than simply treating the conditions seen on your MRI, we put each patient through an extensive two-day testing period prior to surgery. This allows us to confirm your diagnosis and best determine the accurate treatment route and procedure choice.
