Does Baptist Health Spine Center use Laser Spine Surgery?

At this time, we are not a proponent of laser spine surgery as the current application of a laser with spine surgery is merely as a cutting device.

This may change in the future as new technology is developed. But at this point, in our opinion, the use of a laser is intended more as a marketing approach to attract patients to a surgery that is not really different from a traditional spine surgery.

New “minimally invasive spine surgery” approaches used by spine surgeons can now shorten the incision, lessen time in the hospital, and speed the return to activity with a less painful recovery.

We are a huge advocate of new technology where it shows benefit to the patient.
