LOS ANGELES, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles back surgeon, Dr. Rezaian of the California Orthopedic Medical Clinic, has pioneered a less invasive method for treating Spinal Stenosis.

Open back surgery used to be the only way to eliminate the bulging discs that were pinching nerves, however, recent medical advances have given patients requiring Spinal Stenosis Treatment a new glimmer of hope. Doctors have pioneered a new laser Spinal Stenosis treatment option that has tremendous benefits over the old method of open back surgery that has exciting new implications for the safety and effectiveness of the surgery.

Spinal Stenosis encompasses any narrowing of the pine that causes pinched nerves or pinched spinal column. The recommended Spinal Stenosis Treatment depends on the severity of the pain, which can range from mild to debilitating. Severe cases of Spinal Stenosis usually requires surgical intervention to remove the part of the bulging or herniated disc pressing into the delicate nerves.

Traditional open back surgery to treat Spinal Stenosis requires risky general anesthesia, has a long recovery time, and results in a large visible scar. Additionally, many patients who underwent the open back surgery Spinal Stenosis treatment actually felt worse after the procedure than they did before treatment was rendered. Knowing that there was a better way to surgically treat Spinal Stenosis,

Los Angeles-based California Orthopedic Medical Clinic, Dr. Rezaian helped pioneer a new method for removing the piece of herniated disc. Known as Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy, the new Spinal Stenosis Treatment enabled doctors to be as minimally invasive as possible while still treating the issue.

Over time, the laser Spinal Stenosis Treatment has shown to be less risky, quicker and more effective than the traditional open back surgery method. Unlike open back surgery Spinal Stenosis treatment, the laser surgery does not require the patient to go under general anesthesia. With only local anesthesia administered, the laser Spinal Stenosis treatment can be performed quickly and painlessly, enabling patients to recover more than twice as fast as they would from traditional open back surgery.

Patients seeking the top experts in this cutting edge new Spinal Stenosis treatment choose Dr. Rezaian for his knowledge, experience and success with the laser procedure.
