Laser Spine Surgery At North Jersey Spine Group
aser spine surgery is often used in conjunction with minimally invasive spine surgery to alleviate pain caused by bones compressing on nerves, spine tumors and herniated discs. Instead of using tools such as a scalpel to perform incisions, with laser spine surgery a state-of-the-art laser is used to remove tumors. It is important to understand other traditional surgical instruments are used to remove bone and ligaments while the laser is only used for the tumor extraction portion of the surgery. Lasers have been used in surgery since 1973 and provide patients with a quick recovery time, less pain, and less blood loss.
