Hello I am Ben, a new member here. I do need your help to get some information about the MicroSpine surgery or Laser Endoscopic Spine Surgery.
I have a low back pain really bother me for a long time. I can not sit for long time, I can not carry heavy stuff, even hold up my 2 years daughter is a challenge for me; and my left leg start hurting.

The MRI I took on Oct. 08 shows,
1.small broad-based disc protrusion centrally and right paracentrally at L3-L4 with intrasubstance tear of the posterior annulus in this region.
2.Minimal to mild circumferential disc bulging at L4-L5.
3.Desiccation of the L5, L4 and L3 discs with the heights of the disc spaces being fairly well maintained.

I consulted a neural surgery specialist and he said my case is not in a seriously condition and no surgery needed this moment. I have been doing physical therapy for a while, not too much help. I just can not back to my normal life. I am looking some information online and find out the MicroSpine surgery. It sounds good. But I have no any idea about it. All they said it will be a wonderful solution for the back pain relieves. I would like get some information from your guys about it. What do you think? And what did you hear about it?
I know lots of place doing it. The one that I know doing it is called MicoSpine, in Defuniak Springs, FL. It accepts my insurance. Is this a good one? Too many questions, your answers would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

  • I had Laser surgery performed in Florida 4 days ago. Being early in the recovery process makes it impossible to comment on long term results but I'm in no pain and taking no pain killers of any kind. I'm a happy camper. They treated 2 bulging disks L 3&4 and L4&5 and did thermal ablations from L5 to S1 inclusive. We can't post names on the forum but if you PM me I'll be happy to give you the name of the clinic.
