Laser Spine Institute Helping Patients to "Stand Up and Be Free" from Debilitating Back Pain
Date:11/12/2008

Laser-assisted technology and a 5-day process give patients a new lease on life.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2008 -- People suffering from chronic back pain are reaching out to an innovative solution helping them to "Stand Up and Be Free" through minimally invasive endoscopic surgery. With facilities in Tampa and Scottsdale, the Laser Spine Institute is revolutionizing the landscape of spinal surgery using cutting-edge lasers and a 5-day process from surgery to recovery, drastically reducing the time it takes for patients to be pain-free and back to doing the activities they love, whether it's being active with their families or enjoying favorite sports. With just a tiny one-inch incision, expert surgeons can correct a variety of back and neck ailments from degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis to herniated discs and spinal arthritis.

A team of renowned surgeons led by Dr. James St. Louis, a two-time recipient of the Physician of the Year award, have performed more than 8,000 surgeries, perfecting minimally invasive techniques and allowing surgeons to perform multiple procedures in one 60 minute surgery, with less risk and less recovery time than traditional open back surgeries or fusions, and the added comfort of resort-style amenities at a state-of-the-art facility.
   
Dr. St. Louis explains, "We understand our patients want to dance with their spouses and play 18 holes of golf free from pain. Using laser-assisted techniques, we are able to preserve a full-range of motion for patients, whereas spinal fusion is a restrictive and not always successful fix. Patients desire and deserve an active lifestyle, and our procedures are able to give them back their lives, in as little as five days."
   
At LSI, patients receive all of their spinal health care needs in one location. From pre-operative imaging and diagnostic testing, to endoscopic laser surgery and post-operative physical therapy, patients receive the highest quality care combined with the most advanced treatments. In today's fast paced world, back pain sufferers don't have time for a six-week recovery from traditional back surgery.

By offering a streamlined 5-day process, LSI allows patients to recover from their minimally invasive endoscopic procedure while enjoying resort amenities at the institute. From massage chairs and catered meals to free internet and a concierge who keeps waiting families in touch with the OR, LSI provides a comforting environment for patients and caregivers.
   
Former patient and mother, Cheryl Harper found relief and a new outlook after her successful surgery. "The pain took over my life from morning to night. I have two little boys and I was always tired. After surgery, I feel like I've added 10 to 20 years onto my life. Now I'm active, and spending time with my family, especially my two little boys."

Debilitating back pain can affect patient lives socially, emotionally and financially. After receiving life changing surgery, LSI patients are able to return to do doing the things they love whether it's on the golf course, returning to work, or simply bending down to give kids and grandkids a hug.
