Laser Spine Surgery Attorneys
Pennsylvania - New Jersey - Delaware - New York - Nationwide
Laser spine surgery promises patients relief from back ailments using a relatively quick and minimally invasive procedure. But the recently popular technique has also produced complaints and injuries – and a flurry of lawsuits.
An expose by Bloomberg News that examined Laser Spine Institute LLC, which bills itself as “the largest spine center in the world,” found nearly seven times the number of lawsuits were filed against the burgeoning business compared to outpatient surgery nationally.
Several cases were cited, including one woman who was left with a dangerous spinal fluid leak and another patient who suffered internal bleeding from two lacerated arteries.
If you or a loved one suffered serious injury as the result of laser spine surgery, you should contact a laser spine surgery lawyer for a free evaluation of your case.
Bloomberg News in a May 2011 article noted 15 lawsuits had been filed against Laser Spine Institute since October 2009 and that it had paid at least $2.8 million to settle cases with seven patients since July of that year. Laser Spine Institute has surgical centers in Philadelphia, Tampa, Oklahoma City and Scottsdale, Arizona.
Laser spine surgery is costly at about $30,000 per procedure – double what health insurers will pay for laser-less surgery – and is often unnecessary or inappropriate for many patients who get it, the Bloomberg article said. It said Laser Spine Institute, which is six years old, had sales of $109 million in 2010 and net income of $98.9 million the previous four years.
