LSI claims are astounding. 97% success rate for a medical procedure? Really? Do you know of any other medical procedure with that rate of success? Furthermore, their commercials appear to say that a 40 minute laser procedure and a one inch incision and a Band Aid will cure almost every spine problem known to man. (I say appear to say, because they are deliberately vague, they only imply it) This is simply ridiculous, if you know anything about spine surgery. The fact of the matter is that lasers were abandoned by most spine surgeons in the 1990s, because of their high re-operation rates. Beware of venture capitalist doctors. You don't even know which doctor you will get when you go to this "institute", which is nothing more than cobbled together medical practices across many states.View Thread
