Endoscopic laser spine surgery is the latest alternative to traditional open spine surgery. It cannot be used in every case, yet provides an excellent option for many spinal decompression procedures. It is a minimally invasive procedure. This means less tissue damage, shorter recovery times and fewer complications.

Patients can have the procedure done on an outpatient basis, leaving the hospital the same day. We perform the procedure under local anesthesia through little more than a small skin incision. Be sure to ask Dr. Frazier if you are a candidate for this revolutionary procedure. If you are not a candidate, there are still many other less invasive procedures that Dr. Frazier specializes in. He will work with you to find the best, least invasive manner to return you to health.

Medications

Back and neck pain can be miserable! Injury, herniated disc, spinal stenosis lumbar, osteoarthritis, vertebral compression fracture… Even a simple back strain can cause considerable pain. Back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek medical care.
In our practice, we recommend and prescribe medication to patients. We understand spinal disorders can be painful and want to help you manage your pain while you are in our care. Here are common types of drugs recommended, prescribed or available over-the-counter (OTC) to treat symptoms. Some drugs work better in combination, such as an NSAID and muscle relaxant. Dr. Frazier and his staff will explain which drugs can and cannot be combined and answer all of your questions about your treatment.

Medication Types and Purposes

  • Narcotics (opioids) for short-term acute pain control
  • Muscle relaxants to relieve muscle spasms and cramping
  • NSAIDs* to reduce inflammation and pain
  • Sedatives to promote sleep
  • Transdermal analgesics for pain control using a patch

*Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

Common Side Effects

Whether your medication is prescribed (Rx) or over-the-counter (OTC), there are risks – side effects, drug interactions and possible liver damage. Be sure to tell your doctor about your allergies, current medications (Rx and OTC) and use of vitamins and herbs. When you obtain a new medication, read the information provided by your pharmacist or on the label. Report these side effects immediately to Dr. Frazier's office:

  • Black, tarry stools
  • Behavioral changes
  • Cold, clammy skin
  • Hallucinations

  • Fast or slow heartbeat
  • Hives, skin rash, itching
