Called them go find out that after my Medicare (primary and Tricare for Life.(secondary) insurance pays. The above amount(s) will be out of YOUR pocket! Tricare for Life will NOT pay a dime towards this "Institute"
Buyer Beware

I had surgery Sept 28th in Cincinnati Oh at the SI for spinal stenosis, bone spurs & thick cartlage. For about 2 weeks I could walk & get around good, then on day 16 I could not get out of bed. Pain & burning so bad & my back locked up. Called the Spine Institute & was told irritated nerves from being compressed so long. Said use anti-inflammatory drugs & ice packs. 2 weeks later hurt so bad can't sit, lay, sleep they called in steroids for inflammation. Still no better. They recommended physical therapy now & go back to pain management. I am worse than before the surgery! They automatically take a payment out of my checking every month for 7 years cause insurance wouldn't pay. I don't know what to do! Maybe I should contact an atty, my Dr said that's hard to pay for 7 years for a bad surgery. I will not go back there. Wish I had read reviews before going. I was just told by physical therapy the reason I had no pain for 2 weeks was after surgery they pump you full of something like novacaine & you think you feel good then it starts wearing off & the pain is back.

Laser Spine Institute is amazing! I went from over 8 years of pain and crawling on the floor to zero pain and (attempting) cartwheels with my kids! Every person that works there is the absolute best and extremely caring. My recovery was incredibly easy and I've never felt better! If you are suffering, I urge you to call them. Get your life back - you deserve it!!

I have had 2 surgeries with LSI Before you go there you should know that they only operate on 1/2 of 1 level (in the neck - I think lumbar is the whole level). So it you have (like me) problems on both sides of your neck, you will need at least 2 surgeries. I did get SOME relief from my pain but it involves 4 different levels. Since my surgeries I have seen 2 ortho surgeons and a neurosurgeon in the hopes that someone could do it ALL at once. (LSI charges about $30K per 1/2 level PLUS your own travel costs (and hotel for a week - you will have to be there for at least 5 days for tests pre-op and procedure.) All 3 other docs say I'm not a surgery candidate. I am convinced that I have nerve compression without disk involvement based on what LSI found when they went in as well as based on what lessens my symptoms. However the nerve compressions DO NOT (and never did) show up on my MRI. The last doc I saw (familiar with LSI) said they are very aggressive - as in they WILL operate on you.

Im in so much pain I can't move around much although I have to. My Laser Dr refered me to his pain management. Does anyone have any advice there? I hope to at least get relief.

I had cervical spine surgery at the Tampa campus of LSI 2/16/15. I was treated with utmost respect, and compassion at every level. I've since received numerous calls from nurses checking in on my progress and recovery. My relief was immediate. They also took care of my husband during my procedure and appointments, with free massage, refreshment and comfortable waiting areas. These are the best of the best!

My husband just had surgery yesterday at the OKC facility, and it's been a great experience! The facilities are beautiful, the doctor, nurses and staff are very friendly and helpful. His surgery only took a little over an hour, and he could tell the difference by evening. We highly recommend Laser Spine Inst!

This place changed my life. I was partially paralyzed with pain for 3.5 years. I couldn't even hold my newborn daughter. I was in and out of my procedure in no time and even walked out of the recovery room. I am now 90+ weeks pain free and loving life with my family. THANK YOU LSI, Dr. Nees and the OKC Staff
