People considering laser spine surgery will have an opportunity to get their questions answered for free at two seminars on Saturday, Nov. 17 by a pioneer in the field. They seminars, sponsored by Physician Partners of America Minimally Invasive Spine Group, are open to the public, including winter residents.
Attendees are welcome to bring MRIs or X-rays and get a no-cost evaluation by word-renowned laser spine surgeon, Dr. James St. Louis. These evaluations are limited to the first 100 reservations.
The seminars will be at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce Banquet Hall, 1651 Sun City Center Plaza, Sun City Center, FL 34742. Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be available.
Physician Partners of America is among the few healthcare companies that accepts traditional Medicare, as well as Tricare and other insurance, for laser spine surgery.
The procedure is muscle-sparing, requires an incision of one inch or less, and is done on an outpatient basis at locations throughout Tampa Bay. Patients walk out and go home the same day. Recovery takes days in the majority of cases, as opposed to weeks or months for open-back surgery.
It is an excellent opinion for decompressing spinal nerves associated with such conditions as bulging or herniated discs, failed back surgeries and spinal stenosis.
Register online or reserve a spot by calling (813) 605-1034.
