The Holmium YAG laser is the latest tool used by Physician Partners of America to relieve neck and back pain without opioids. It precisely targets and ablates pain-causing nerves that exit the spine.

Watch below to see how laser spine procedures work for facet joint disease.

The incision is usually no larger than a grain of rice: the muscles surrounding the spine are gently spread apart just a few millimeters, not cut or torn as they are during open surgery. That means patients walk out of the care center and recover in days or weeks instead of months. For the vast majority of patients, the original pain is gone.

Dr. Clavo performs this procedure for two common spine pain conditions: arthritis of the spine and facet disease.  His office accepts most insurance and Medicare, so the procedures are more affordable for more people.
