Laser spine surgery corrects injuries and abnormalities in the spine that have not responded to more conservative pain management plans. Endoscopic spine surgery may be a viable option for patients; however, a consultation with a physician is required to determine what course of action would be best. Some are minimally invasive.

- Laminectomy: In this procedure, bone material is removed from one or more vertebrae to relieve nerve compression.
- Microdiscectomy (Microdecompression): This spine surgery is a partial disc removal to relieve spinal nerve compression; it is often used to treat herniated discs.
- Spinal fusion: This spine surgery procedure fuses two or more spinal segments to relieve pain caused by motion; other procedures may require fusion surgery to maintain spinal stability.
Minimally Invasive Techniques
Although some laser spine surgery techniques are still performed in traditional ways, advances in instrumentation and imaging technology have led to the development of minimally invasive spine surgery techniques. Minimally invasive spine surgery is designed to lessen the impact and stress of surgery while still providing relief of symptoms. Using endoscopy, laser technology and robotics, minimally invasive techniques allow a surgeon to precisely target areas of the spine while disturbing as little of the supporting tissues as possible.
