On the day of your surgery, you will be scheduled for a certain time to arrive to the preoperative area to meet your surgeon and anesthesiologist. The details of the procedure will be reviewed with you at this time.
Almost every surgery performed at Laser Spine Institute is performed utilizing a mixture of local anesthesia (numbing medicine) and intravenous sedation (pain medication, sedatives). Our board-certified anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists collaborate to assure patient safety and comfort throughout procedure.
The percentage of surgery complications at Laser Spine Institute is very low compared to open neck or back surgery. Our procedures are minimally invasive and only require a small incision. Complication with postoperative infection at the incision site is a rare complication. Feel free to ask the staff any questions you have as you settle in and prepare for your surgery.
