Exam room

You will undergo your first consultation and all necessary pre- and postoperative appointments in one of our ten exam rooms. These rooms are designed to help you feel comfortable and relaxed while you begin our streamlined experience. Care Partners are welcome to accompany you in these rooms while you review your MRI with the physician or receive your physical exam.

Preoperative area

The day of your surgery, you will begin in the preoperative area. While there, you will meet your surgeon and anesthesiologist. During this time, they will review your conditions, surgical order and walk you through the procedure.

Surgical suites

Laser Spine Institute’s Philadelphia center is equipped with advanced technology, providing patients with the highest quality of surgical care available. Our surgical suites are prepared with all of the equipment your surgical team will need to perform your procedure. All of our surgeons specialize exclusively in our minimally invasive procedures and perform more minimally invasive outpatient pro­cedures each month than any other spine surgery provider in the world.

Postoperative area

After your surgery, you will be moved to the postoperative area. This area is designed to allow the skilled nursing staff to monitor your vitals and recovery postoperatively. Once you are cleared to leave, you will be free to return to your home or hotel to relax.


Laser Spine Institute is committed to making every aspect of each patient’s stay enjoyable. For that reason, we partner with local hotels to offer patients a streamlined experience. Our Philadelphia center is currently partnered with three local hotels, which also provide Laser Spine Institute’s patients with a shuttle to and from the facility and surrounding attractions, dining and entertainment.
