Are You a Candidate for Laser Spine Institute in Philadelphia?
Before looking into the specifics of procedures and surgeon credentials, it is important to understand whether or not you may be a candidate for one of our procedures. Laser Spine Institute offers a review of your most recent MRI or CT scan in order to best determine your initial candidacy for any of our procedures. During this MRI review, our skilled medical staff will review a copy of the report associated with your most recent imaging. 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.
