Laser Spine Surgery


We understand the significant negative impact back or neck pain could have on quality of life. At San Jose Neurospine, our goal is to get our patients back to enjoying life using minimally invasive techniques that involve the use of tiny incisions and muscle sparing methods to treat the spinal problem. There is a big difference between operating through a ½ inch incision and operating through a 5 inch incision. The major differences include:

Open Spine Surgery

  • 4-5 inch incision
  • Muscles are cut and damaged
  • 5-7 day hospital stay
  • >6 month recovery in most cases
  • Severe post-op pain
  • Increased blood loss
  • As high as 10-15% infection rate
  • Large scar

How to Know if You're a Candidate?

If any of the following statements sound like you or someone you know, please contact San Jose Neurospine to obtain a No-cost MRI review.


You avoid walking or prolonged sitting because it worsens your back, neck, arm or leg pain

Minimally invasive spine surgery could solve this problem. A ½ inch incision could equal a lifetime of pain relief.

You find yourself hunching over to get back pain relief

This could be a sign of spinal stenosis (narrowing of the tunnels where the nerves travel). Minimally invasive spine surgery could get you back to walking normal again. Several of our patients wish they hadn’t waited to get the procedure.

You’ve been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, bulging/herniated disc or other spinal conditions

Our Board Certified, Northwestern and UCLA trained Neurosurgeon has performed over 2000 successful minimally invasive spine surgery cases treating these conditions. Minimally invasive surgery is our area of expertise and this is ALL we do.

Your doctor has informed you that you need spine surgery

If you’re considering spine surgery, you owe it to yourself to explore minimally invasive options. A significant number of the patients we have successfully treated using minimally invasive surgery were initially advised by other centers that open spine surgery was the only option. Seek a second opinion from San Jose Neurospine.

You’ve tried conservative treatments like massage therapy, chiropractic treatments and physical therapy without pain relief

Minimally invasive surgery addresses the underlying structural source of the problem and could provide permanent pain relief. Call today to find out if you’re a candidate.
