Individual spine conditions, treatment and recovery times may vary. Each patient's experience with endoscopic spine surgery will differ. All surgical procedures involve some level of risk. If directed to pursue surgery by your physician, prompt action is advised, as waiting may reduce the efficacy of surgical treatment. Some patients may require an experience that exceeds five days and others may require as few as four days. Patients may be required to rest 48 hours post-surgery. These procedures are reserved for those patients medically cleared and scheduled for endoscopic treatment. Paid spokesperson(s) for Laser Spine Institute results may not be typical. Laser Spine Institute requires each surgeon to complete an extensive Laser Spine Institute training program. MRI reviews are preliminary, and some patients' individual medical conditions may require additional testing that Laser Spine Institute will facilitate through a third-party service provider. Diagnostic procedures in Philadelphia, Houston and Oklahoma City are facilitated by Laser Spine Institute through a third-party provider.
