Watch below to see how laser spine procedures work for facet joint disease.
The incision is just 2-3 mm. – that’s smaller than one quarter-inch. Muscles and tissue do not have to be torn or cut, so recovery takes days or a few weeks, not months as is typical with open-back surgery. Patients walk out on their own after the procedure. For most, the original pain is relieved quickly — sometimes instantly.
