About the offer

MRI-guided stereotactic laser ablation is a straightforward, less invasive way to treat spinal tumors. It combines MRI and laser technology to find and remove tumors without open surgery. Before the treatment, patients undergo various diagnostic tests and meet with a neurosurgeon and anesthesiologist to plan the procedure; on the day of treatment, the patient is given anesthesia for comfort. The doctor uses MRI to find the tumor and places a thin laser probe through a small cut in the skin. The laser is carefully guided to the tumor location and turned on to destroy the abnormal cells without harming healthy tissue. Next, a spinal mass is heated with a laser until the tumor is completely burned. After the procedure, patients receive care to help with any pain or symptoms. This procedure is often used when major surgery isn't possible. In addition, it can be combined with other treatments like radiation or chemotherapy to get better outcomes and reduce the chance of the tumor returning. Patients can benefit from this simple procedure with less pain, faster recovery, better nerve function, and fewer complications. It means they can get back to their daily lives more quickly. In short, MRI-guided stereotactic laser ablation is a minimally-invasive invasive way to treat spinal tumors, helping patients recover faster and have better overall results.
