Laser Spine Institute — St. Louis, MO
Laser Spine Institute has taken a patient-centered approach to treating chronic neck and back pain since we first opened in 2005. We help our patients find relief through the use of minimally invasive spinal stabilization and spinal decompression procedures at our locations around the nation, including Laser Spine Institute St. Louis.
This conveniently located, state-of-the-art facility has 36,000 square feet of space dedicated to providing diagnostic and surgical services to our patients, all while keeping them and their loved ones as comfortable as possible throughout every step of the process. We invite all who visit our St. Louis surgery center to take advantage of our comfortable patient lounge, our complimentary internet access and other amenities.
At Laser Spine Institute, we know the key to receiving appropriate care for any type of spine condition is an accurate diagnosis followed by treatment that is tailored to the patient’s individual needs. That’s why we have 10 exam rooms where our physicians can investigate our patient’s symptoms, as well as a diagnostic testing and procedure suite where we can complete MRIs and X-ray imaging as necessary.
If surgery is indicated, our St. Louis surgery center includes three operating rooms with all the equipment necessary for our surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures. By maintaining our excellent equipment, facilities and commitment to safety, we have earned a certification from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Our minimally invasive techniques offer many advantages compared to traditional open spine surgery and can be a clinically appropriate first choice^ between the two options for many patients who are diagnosed with bulging and herniated discs, spinal canal narrowing, sciatica and other spine conditions.
