Laser spine surgery aims to decompress the nerves in spine using laser technology thus relieving the symptoms of sciatica and other ailments. Laser back treatment also helps surgeons remove tumors from the spinal cord or bone and soft tissue around the spinal canal.  In addition, lasers in spine treatment are also helpful in shrinking disc material around a nerve. In this surgery, a focused beam of light called laser is used for removing the soft tissues over the spine.
One of the methods of laser back surgery is called percutaneous laser disc decompression (PLDD).
