At ProMed SPINE, we strive to provide the most advanced medical spinal treatments possible at our Los Angeles based practices by utilizing the latest in surgical technology. Minimally invasive spinal surgery is a modern medical procedure for correcting spinal disorders with the least intrusive surgical means available. Our surgeons are renowned experts in performing minimally invasive spinal surgeries, leaving patients with clean, satisfying results, and faster recovery for spine surgery. During these spinal surgery procedures, our spine surgeons will make a small incision near the point of interest leaving the patient with less bleeding, pain and a shorter recovery period than other surgical options.
Is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery The Right Treatment For You?
If you are a patient suffering from a spinal condition, such as deformities, infections, tumors, instability, degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc then a less-invasive spine surgery may be an option for you. Before considering this procedure, patients should attempt non-surgical options, such as medication or physical therapy, to see if results can be achieved without a surgical procedure. Our back doctors believe spinal surgery is always the last resort, and will give you a comprehensive consultation before recommending a surgical procedure. If spinal surgery is deemed necessary, our doctors are highly trained and experienced in less-invasive spinal techniques and are exceptionally qualified in delivering professional results.
At Dr. Gravori’s office, we understand how detrimental spinal pain and complications can be, and go out of our way to make patients feel confident and comfortable while they are seeking treatment. If you are considering less-invasive back pain treatment for your spinal ailments or would like more information on our doctors and the procedure, contact us today at 888-75-SPINE.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Spine Surgery
To better help our patients understand their procedure, we’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that we hear often about laser spine surgery. Remember, at ProMed SPINE, you truly are receiving the highest level of care possible.
Q: What happens in a minimally invasive spinal procedure?
A: During a minimally invasive spine surgery procedure (such as fusion or decompression), a small device called a tubular retractor is inserted down the spinal column, creating a tunnel to the affected area. This device holds muscles open and serves as an exit for spinal material being removed, or an entrance for devices that may be implanted.
Q: What makes less-invasive surgery different from other spinal treatments?
A: Less-invasive spinal surgery requires a much smaller incision and state of the art, specialized instruments leaving cleaner results. In an open spinal surgery procedure, doctors cut a long incision along the back and moves the muscles attached to the spine aside to access the area being worked on. This type of procedure can result in damage to muscles in areas surrounding the target area of the procedure and can potentially lead to unintended damage. Minimally invasive techniques reduce the risk of complications by shrinking the area affected and leaving a smaller area to heal. This also means less bleeding and a shorter stay in the hospital.
