Over the last several decades, laser back surgery has become increasingly popular in the pursuit of back pain relief due both to its effectiveness in treating constant pain, and its minimally invasive, low impact nature. Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S., the medical director of the California Orthopedic Medical Clinic, has years of experience using laser surgery to perform the highly successful Universal Endoscopic Discectomy procedure to treat herniated discs. This type of herniated disc surgery allows Dr. Rezaian to remove only the damaged portion of the disc in question, allowing for a surgery that has a lower impact on the body, resulting in fewer complications.
This also results in lower scarring because the laser only needs to make a very small incision for the lumbar discectomy to be performed. The procedure is so effective that in one study of Dr. Rezaian’s patients who had the Universal Endoscopic Discectomy procedure, 60 percent of the patients were able to return to their jobs without the assistance of any painkillers whatsoever. Many people suffering from chronic back pain cannot even imagine a life without pain, let alone a life free of pain and painkillers.
Because the Universal Endoscopic Discectomy performed by Dr. Rezaian results in minimal scarring with low rates of complication, the procedure is perfect for patients who already tried another type of back surgery that did not produce the results they desired. Dr. Rezaian’s patients thank him constantly for the pain-free lifestyle his work his brought them, and you too can share in their relief.
