Laser Spine Surgery vs. Traditional Orthopedic Surgery
When a patient struggles with chronic orthopedic pain in the back, neck, or legs, surgery is often recommended as a curative treatment. While there are many non-invasive treatments available (that require no surgical cuts), surgery may be recommended as a last resort to try to eliminate the cause of the pain completely.
But traditional open back surgery comes with risks.
It requires a large incision and an open wound. That opening can lead to:
- Longer procedure and longer healing time
- Excessive blood loss and higher risk of infection
- Scarring with a greater chance of re-opening the wound.
- More difficult procedure for the surgeon
There are situations where this type of surgery is absolutely necessary, but it does come with risk of complications. Those complications often dissuade patients from considering the procedure.
How Laser Spine Surgery Works
Laser spine surgery uses either a laser or a very fine instrument to create a much smaller incision. Then the surgeon uses an endoscope (small tube with camera) and micro or sometimes nano instruments to perform the necessary procedure, without requiring a large opening for access.
Doctors trained to perform this type of minimally invasive surgery use their talents to navigate to the problem area and remove bone, shrink discs, or clear out tissues effecting nerves all without any sizeable cuts inside or outside of the body.
At the end of the operation, most patients require minimal bed rest, recover faster, and are less prone to complications. AICA Laser spine surgery is a highly effective alternative to traditional orthopedic surgery, and a useful choice for those that struggle with chronic spine pain.
