A laser spine surgery like eDiscSculptTM technique does cost a considerable amount of money. However, there are a range of expenses covered in that cost, including operating room fees, the anesthesiologist, the medications, and the laser. Because laser surgery is relatively quick and there is no need for a hospital stay, it may be less expensive than open spine surgery. And although it isn’t technically a line item, by avoiding open back surgery, the pain and downtime you also avoid are priceless.

Spinal fusion surgery, also known as spondylodesis, is surgery to join, or fuse, two or more vertebrae in the lower back. The aim of the procedure is to fuse together the painful vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone. For patients researching treatment alternatives to spine fusion — which is considered a major surgery — it is important that a doctor first identifies the cause of your symptoms to isolate the actual cause of pain. Then he or she can determine which device and procedure will best address the problem.

Laser surgery cannot be used to treat every spine condition, but it is applicable to the majority of common spine conditions, including herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, arthritis and bone spurs
Most spinal conditions are caused by displaced tissue pressing against the spinal cord or nerve roots, with disc material and vertebral bone being the common culprits. Therefore, surgery is aimed at removing the offending tissue, while leaving all of the other spinal structures intact. Laser spine surgery is well suited to this task.

Because the cervical spine contains so many nerves, in rare cases an untreated cervical disc herniation can eventually lead to paralysis. For that reason, progressive symptoms are treated more aggressively, with surgery considered sooner. Even the common symptoms of a cervical herniated disc — pain, tingling or muscle weakness — should never be considered your “new normal.” Conditions of the cervical spine can and should be treated as soon as possible.
