You don't have to live with back pain!
Why don’t more surgeons around the country perform Non-Traumatic Discectomy?
It is a source of confusion that the words “minimally invasive” have lost their original meaning since the Back Institute pioneered the techniques. Today, surgeons around the country are using smaller openings in their procedures, but many are still missing the point of “minimally invasive,” which is not to cut muscle, not to remove bone, not to cause scarring, and not to alter the normal anatomy of the spine in order to get to the problem disc area.
As spine centers around the country rely on clever marketing and catchy words like “laser” to attract patients, they continue to lack the experience, expertise, credentials and technology to do a truly Non-Traumatic Procedure. In fact, a laser is rarely needed in any of these procedures, whether done at the Back Institute or elsewhere.
No Cutting – No Bleeding – No Scarring
With the help of x-ray fluoroscopy and a magnified video for guidance, a small specially designed probe is inserted through the skin into the problem disc location. Non-traumatic tools are then used through the hollow center of the probe to remove the offending disc.
