Laser Spine Institute offers state-of-the-art operating rooms in Oklahoma City. Our suites are equipped with holmium lasers, high-definition endoscopic cameras and video monitors, in-room picture archiving and communication system viewing monitors for MRI and X-ray image display, as well as electronic charting to ensure the highest accuracy and safety at all times. Our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive outpatient procedures, so you can always rest assured that you’re receiving the most specialized and focused care while at Laser Spine Institute.
The procedures performed in our operating rooms are all directed to relieve neck and back pain in order for our patients to return to active, healthy lives. Our minimally invasive surgeries are laser-assisted, and include a foraminotomy, which relieves pressure on nerves compressed by intervertebral foramen; a laminotomy, which relieves pressure on the spinal cord when it’s compressed by spinal stenosis; and an endoscopic discectomy, where a portion of the herniated or bulging disc that is pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord is removed.
We also offer a facet thermal ablation to clean the facet joint and deaden the nerve, which relieves pain, as well as RegenaDISC℠, a stem cell procedure that restores and strengthens the spinal disc to promote long-term health by using the patient’s own cells. Finally, there is minimally invasive stabilization, an outpatient spinal fusion surgery. The type of procedure performed on each patient is determined by the results of their exams and diagnostic tests, such as the MRI and X-rays.
