Yes, quite familiar and I'd rather not offer my opinion in a public forum but you might search on the infamous Dr. Bonati relationships with the various states legal systems yourself, it is easily available, and draw your own conclusions.
I can tell you that Laser spine surgery does not offer any advantages over traditional open procedures as far as outcomes are concerned based on any of the studies to date.

Hi Bronco, I Hope You are Well!! My Microdiscectomy only left about a 4 Inch Scar in My Lower Back, and I Believe they Removed the Half of My Disc at L5/S1, and also did My Laminectomy though that Small Incision, but I don't think it was Laser. Any Time You have to Deal with a Major Part of Your Body, such as Spine, Heart, etc. it's always Good to Explore All Possibilities, and to be Wary of anything that has not been being Used Extensively, and with a Good Track Record. My type of Surgery has a Great Success Rate, but We didn't know about My Body Producing Excessive Scar Tissue, it was My First Surgery!! Best of Luck, and Please let Us know what You find Out!!Wink

Bronco, I do believe the LSI used to sponsor this forum and they were very helpful in answering spine related questions from injured workers. They never initiated a solicitation for surgery from LSI; however, if someone asked specifically about their facility they had to contact them off the forum.

Most Insurance Companies use an MPN and unless LSI is in the MPN they cannot be used. I doubt that any MPN would carry them. Most of their clients are "self-paid", and most injured workers cannot afford that type of expense.
Let Go, and Let God......
