Learn more about becoming a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute Scottsdale
If you have been diagnosed with a spine condition and have exhausted conservative treatments, you may be considering the outpatient surgery at Laser Spine Institute. The first step in determining if you are a potential candidate for one of our procedures is to receive a no-cost MRI or CT scan review* from our medical team. If you are suffering from neck or back pain and have not had this imagery taken, speak to your doctor or spine specialist to find out how to take this step.
Since the symptoms of spine conditions are typically related to nerve compression, the goal is to identify whether displaced spinal anatomy is putting pressure on a nerve in the spinal column. At Laser Spine Institute, our minimally invasive spine surgery uses muscle-sparing techniques to decompress nerves on an outpatient basis.

Experience the relief our procedures can offer
If it is determined you are a potential candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery but you want to have a better idea of what relief might feel like, Laser Spine Institute offers our Relief Confirmation Test. This test is a diagnostic injection called a selective nerve root block, which is performed on the nerve believed to be the source of painful symptoms. If this nerve block relieves pain, then our surgeons can create a targeted surgical plan for the patient. Reach out to our team to learn more and for answers to any questions you have.
