Patients should be extremely careful when spine websites make claims about their results without any published data from peer-reviewed sources. I am proud to display my training and published works but note other sites do not do this. Laser has become a very frequently sited example of these kinds of claims. Look for the published results! Most spine surgeons understand the role of laser but it really is just another cutting tool and there are many other minimally invasive ways to treat the spine that have documented outcomes.Most cases of stenosis are not as simple as removing a disc where laser is most likely to be a reasonable choice.Spinal stenosis requires a large thoughtout decision that include stabilization when there is associated slip or evidence of excessive instability.
