Laser Spine Procedures in Palm Beach County
The laser is the latest tool used by Physician Partners of America to relieve neck and back pain without opioids. It precisely targets pain-causing nerves along the spine and ablates them quickly. The incision is just 2-3 mm. – less than a quarter-inch. That means muscles are not cut or torn, and therefore, recuperation takes days instead of months. You can walk out of the procedure suite. The majority of patients report that the original pain is gone.
Dr. Tapia performs this procedure for two common debilitating conditions: arthritis of the spine and facet disease. His offices accept Medicare and most insurance. You can be sure he will explain all your options, from conservative to cutting-edge, and do his best to get you back to doing the things you love.
