The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) recently recognized and accredited Laser Spine Institute (LSI) Tampa as a facility that provides the ‘highest quality of care for patients and a safe work environment for medical staff and employees,’ said a recent PRNewswire release. LSI are industry leaders in providing elite care, and resort-like rehabilitation amenities to patients who can benefit from minimally invasive spinal surgeries.
With surgical facilities in Tampa, Florida and Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as consultation facilities in San Diego, California and The Villages, Florida, LSI performs endoscopic outpatient procedures to correct painful spinal issues stemming from bulging and herniated discs, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, foraminal stenosis, bone spurs, spinal arthritis, and failed open back or neck surgeries.
The AAAHC conducted their usual two-day rigorous on-site survey and both the Tampa and Scottsdale facilities and required LSI to undergo a self-assessment of all of their procedures, policies, and processes. The AAAHC found that LSI met or exceeded all the qualifications necessary for them to receive the highly coveted accreditation.
The LSI facility in Scottsdale has four cutting edge operating rooms, and the Tampa flagship facility has seven. Both locations also provide patient access to MRI, radiology, physical therapy, and examination rooms with state of the art technology and equipment.
All of the surgeries performed at LSI facilities require an incision less than one inch long. Patients undergo examination, surgery, and recovery all at the same location. ThePRNewswire release said, ‘From pre-operative imaging and diagnostic testing, to endoscopic laser surgery and post-operative physical therapy, patients receive the highest quality care combined with the most advanced treatments.’
Cheryl Harper, a former patient of LSI and mother of two young boys had only glowing praise for the treatment she received at the LSI facility. She was quoted in the article as saying, ‘The pain took over my life from morning to night. I have two little boys and I was always tired. After surgery, I feel like I’ve added 10 to 20 years onto my life. Now I’m active and spending time with my family, especially my two little boys.’
