Laser Spine Surgery
At Central NJ Spine, our doctors are all openminded and dedicated to treating each patient as an individual. We understand that no two spinal conditions are the same, and we are here to help diagnose and treat you so you can get back to enjoying a pain-free life. We’re committed to providing an accurate diagnosis, and we take the time to discuss each treatment option available so you fully understand the risks and benefits of each.
While some surgeons may prefer one treatment over another, we treat all procedures equally until we agree on one that would be most effective for treating your condition. While we understand that not everyone is a candidate for laser spine surgery, we like it as a procedure because it can be safe and effective. It’s ideal for treating small issuesin the back and can shrink damaged intervertebral discs.
