Spinal Diagnostics is a division of Laser Spine Institute, established to service the preoperative needs of patients with the primary goal of optimizing surgical outcomes. Some patients have pain in multiple areas, which requires additional evaluation at our spinal diagnostic center prior to receiving a surgical order. Some of the diagnostic procedures performed are diagnostic facet injections, selective nerve root block and discograms, as well as MRIs and X-rays.
We offer a convenient, on-site MRI unit for those who need an updated MRI or if their symptoms change. Your MRI will be reviewed with our physicians after all necessary tests are performed to pinpoint the location on your spine that will be operated on. Our skilled and knowledgeable physicians use an MRI in conjunction with a patient’s explanation of symptoms to treat the source of pain in their spine.
Our scheduling coordinators will serve as your concierge through your streamlined patient experience at Laser Spine Institute. Once surgery is ordered by our physicians, you will meet with one of our knowledgeable scheduling coordinators who will guide you through the remainder of your surgical process.
On the day of your surgery at our Tampa surgery center, you will be escorted to our preoperative area. In this area you will meet your surgeon and anesthesiologist. Your surgical procedure will be reviewed and you will be prepared for surgery. If you have any additional questions, your surgeon can answer them at this time.
Laser Spine Institute has state-of-the-art operating rooms that include holmium lasers, high definition endoscopic cameras and video monitors, in-room picture archiving and communication system (PACS) viewing monitors for MRI and X-ray image displays, portable C-arm fluoroscopy with “image push” capability to the PACS system and electronic charting.
