L5 S1 Laser surgery



  • 44 years old and tired of the pain, I have been out of work this time for 6 weeks now. everytime my back goes out I am out longer. I also have the L5 S1 had surgery 18 months ago and obviously it didn't work well here I am again. Tried epidural shots again and they didnt help much either. Went to a seminar last week about laser surgery in Scottsdale AZ. Sounds great but looking for more information

    Thanks for any info
  • I am looking into one of the laser treatment centers in Dallas to repair my bulging discs (spinal compression) and bone spurring. It is covered under my insurance as far as can tell... I can PM with the actual website. They don't go into the exact 'technical' wording or details of their procedures on their website, so I kind of want to make an appt. just to see exactly what they do. Supposedly, it is even less minimally invasive then most minimally invasive procedures because it they do not use any kinda of retractor and the incision is only about 3 mm. So there is minimal/to no muscle/tissue damage. This is not the procedure where they go through your sacral hiatus to repair discs though... looked into them too and decided not really worth the risks of nicking my spinal cord.
