After helping thousands of patients get their lives back through minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery at facilities in Tampa, Scottsdale, and soon in Philadelphia, the Laser Spine Institute (LSI) announces the opening of their newest medical consultation facilities -- in Beverly Hills, Ca., and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in October -- which aim to meet the growing demand for LSI's spinal procedures and provide greater convenience for local patients.
LSI CEO Bill Horne explains, "We are thrilled to open new facilities in Beverly Hills and Fort Lauderdale, where an active and healthy lifestyle is such a big part of the culture. With these new facilities easily accessible to South Florida and West Coast residents, in addition to our existing medical consultation facilities in San Diego, Ca., and The Villages, Fla., LSI's team of renowned surgeons is able to help more patients find relief from back pain tribulations."
Within 30 minutes, simply by bringing their most recent MRI or CT Scan, area patients can now make a local consultation appointment and quickly ascertain if they are candidates for LSI procedures. With this exciting expansion, the expert surgeons at LSI are continuing to revolutionize the landscape of spine surgery and provide easier access to their cutting-edge procedures, which drastically reduce the time it takes for patients to get back to doing the activities they love via a surgical incision measuring less than one inch and specialized post-surgery therapies. All physicians, including Dr. Richard C. Richley for Beverly Hills as well as Dr. Michael Perry and Dr. Craig Burns in Fort Lauderdale, are board certified in their respective locations.
Across the country, 90 percent of Americans experience back pain, and now local sufferers in these especially, active communities are able to reach out to this innovative solution to get their lives back. With more than 880 former LSI patients currently living in California and almost 1500 former patients in Florida, LSI decided to open the strategically located facilities in an effort to bring relief to these dynamic communities.
LSI performs more monthly procedures than any spine surgery provider in the world. After receiving the life changing surgery, LSI patients are able to return to do doing the things they love whether it's on the golf course, returning to work or simply bending down to give kids and grandkids a hug.
