Learn Whether You're a Candidate for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Laser Spine Institute St. Louis
If you have decided Laser Spine Institute is the best fit for you and your lifestyle, it is time to determine if you may be a candidate for our procedures. To begin our streamlined patient experience, we make the initial candidacy process as easy as possible. We offer an initial review of your most recent CT scan or MRI. This review allows our skilled medical staff to determine whether you have the conditions we see and treat on a daily basis.
At Laser Spine Institute we are dedicated to helping as many patients as possible find relief from their chronic pain and symptoms. By treating the underlying causes of each patient’s pain, we are able to offer greater relief than if we simply treated the symptoms listed on your MRI. Many conditions are asymptomatic, which is why we put each patient through extensive testing and evaluation to ensure we treat the source of the pain and, ultimately, allow the patient to get back to the life he or she deserves.
