Spine Disease Treatment

The human spine is made up of small bones known as vertebrae stacked along with discs one on top of another. The spine runs straight down the middle of the back. When the spine is viewed from the side, it has gentle curves on it which helps it to absorb stress from body movement & gravity. When irregularities occur in the spine, the natural curve of the spine gets misaligned in certain areas. It causes back pain.

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and only requires a very small incision. The recovery is also quick in this procedure, unlike conventional spine surgery. An endoscope is used for directing a laser beam at the affected area. The laser is passed through the small incision made which is in the back of the back or neck. The other device used in laser spine surgery is the scalpel. Both the direction and placement of the laser depend upon the actual site of the spinal issue. This is known as the best-proven procedure for spine-related problems.
