Your IntelliSpine Headquarters
North American Spine pioneered the exclusive IntelliSpine Laser Procedure to treat soft tissue conditions such as bulging discs, herniated discs, or scar tissue in all sections of the spine. In this outpatient procedure, the physician reduces disc material impinging on a nerve using a laser and other instruments. Incisions are 5 millimeters or less, and recovery is very quick compared to traditional, open surgery.
Details of the IntelliSpine
In this outpatient procedure, the physician accesses the spine with a hollow needle or steerable catheter through tiny incisions (5 millimeters or less) and uses a laser and other instruments to reduce the bulging/herniated disc material or scar tissue impinging on a spinal nerve. Recovery is very quick compared to traditional, open surgery.

Preparing for the IntelliSpine
Before pursuing the IntelliSpine Procedure, prospective patients should have tried conservative methods, such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and spinal injections. If those methods have not produced meaningful relief, you may be a candidate for a North American Spine procedure.
The procedure performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients do not have to stay overnight at the hospital or surgery center. The recovery period is typically much shorter than open spine surgery. While any surgery requires time to heal, many patients report relief within the first few days and are able to return to light activities as well. More in-depth, customized recovery guidelines are provided by the physician.
I had a bulging disc, sciatica, and annular tear damage. After my procedure, I'm back working at the fire station, playing golf, running, and doing anything and everything. PAIN FREE.
