At Laser Spine, we understand the pain and frustration you are experiencing with your chronic neck pain. Many times, this pain is caused by a common spine condition that can be treated with one of our minimally invasive spine surgeries.
What is our minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion procedure?
Our minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion procedure is an alternative to traditional open neck surgery and open neck fusion.
Your spine is comprised of several vertebrae stacked from the base of your skull to your tailbone. In between each vertebra is a disc that allows the spine to bend and move without affecting the nerves along the spinal cord. When a disc begins to bulge or become herniated, the nerves in the spinal cord might become impacted and cause pain. Additionally, if a vertebra slips or has a deformity, it might compress a nearby nerve and result in pain.
The purpose of our minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion procedure is to decompress the affected nerve and stabilize the spine through a small incision in the back of the neck. During this procedure, our surgeon will make a small incision, usually about 1-inch, in the back of the neck at the site of the spine condition. Once the incision is made, the surgeon will fuse together two or more vertebrae to help stabilize the spine and relieve symptoms associated with compressed nerves, spinal instability and severely herniated discs.

The staff at Laser Spine Orlando and Dr. Molloy are extremely professional and puts the needs of the patient ahead of themselves. I was able to get an appointment right away with Dr. Molloy after filling out a form online and within two weeks was able to get a much-needed surgery to help relieve my back and leg pain. I love these guys. -Patricia C.
I want to thank Dr. Molloy and the staff at Laser Spine Orlando for giving me my life back. Before seeing them I could barely walk and my pain didn’t allow me to do anything around the house. After my surgery, I was pain-free within a week and was able to care for my husband without the thought of having to lie down and rest due to pain. -Margaret W
