Laser Spine Institute - Florida, Tampa - treatment not effective

Posted: 2013-03-21 by    RobR1929
Complaint Rating:  91 % with 22 votes
I had neck surgery at LSI on May 14, 2012. After surgery I felt better until I stopped the pain pills. The surgery did not help me at all even though I followed the exercise and all other instructions and waited until 6 months post surgery. I called LSI and they would not do any more surgery or give some of my $20, 000 that I paid out of my own pocket. I want to start a class action suit against LSI...

Laser Spine Institute - Oklahoma, Oklahoma City - No Complaint

Complaint Rating:  67 % with 15 votes
I just had my surgery on December 21st 2012. I have had pain from an 8mm herniation on L5-S1 for 3 years. My herniation was protruding into my spinal canal. I was on the verge of paralysis.. I did my research, i saw the complaints, I saw A LOT. But in the end I weighed the pros and cons. I did have a minor complication with a spinal leak that was entirely because of ME not them. I was told before going in that this may happen because I have a naturally high spinal pressure. On January 2nd 013 i went in for the correction of the leak because it would not seal on its own.
Even with the complication...

Laser Spine Institute - Pennsylvania, Philadelphia - Follow up

Complaint Rating:  93 % with 15 votes
Might be able to assist you if you have a MINOR back problem. Anything more serious than a minor situation - stay away. Follow up is the absolute worst. Phyisican Assistant is rude and thinks he is funny at the patient's expense. Expected much better follow up after surgery and it is almost non existent, ie, only a follow up telephone call 2, 4 and 6 weeks after surgery. If you DO need to call them, very poor follow up and answers to your questions.
Much better off going to a University Hospital if at all possible....

Laser Spine Institute - Lied about lawsuits

Posted: 2012-11-05 by    milfan
Complaint Rating:  97 % with 31 votes
I attended one of their seminars and was given the impression they'd never been sued. However, they are named in lawsuits all over the Internet. There's an entire article in a major magazine dedicated to their lawsuits. They also gave the impression that one surgery could fix your horrible pain, but I've talked to patients and seen on the internet that you might need a whole bunch of procedures, but they won't tell you until after you're hooked. This company did not represent itself or its procedures fairly in its "educational seminar." And check out www.GlassDoor.com...

I read all of these complaints and I don't understand. I had surgery with Laser Spine about a year ago and it was the the experience was more than I ever could have hoped for. I almost didn't come after reading complaint boards like this one. My wife reminded me that you cannot believe everything you read. She's always right but don't tel her that. I ha back pain for years and was so tired of meds and physical therapy I could hardly get around anymore. I called an from the moment I started speaking with the folks at Laser Spine I was treated as if they really cared. I decided...

Laser Spine Institute - Arizona, Scottsdale - Back Surgery

Posted: 2012-05-26 by    J Gaul
Complaint Rating:  98 % with 42 votes
I originally had surgery for spinal stenosis in 2009. After surgery I experienced more pain than before. It took a year of complaining before anyone listened. Finally, in 2010
I had surgery again The results were no better. In 2011 I had conventional back surgery and asked the surgeon to give me an opinion on the previous surgeries. His comment was "they didn't do you any favors, it was pretty much a mess. I again wrote to Laser Spine and asked for a refund. In typical fashion they have chose to ignore me.
I haven't figured out my next step yet, but I am not done with...

Laser Spine Institute - California - Misrepresentation

Complaint Rating:  98 % with 49 votes
I went to the Phoenix facility in hopes of some relief by thermal ablasion. I checked in on Monday as directed. They waited until the morning of my procedure (Thur) to perform a nerve block, not the two days prior as they should have. They did a block at L4, that was in-sufficient for the proper diagnoses. It should have been L3, L4 & L5. I returned home after being denied treatment (which turned out to be a blessing) and go proper diagnosis from UCSD of CA. They performed a thermal ablasion bi-latterly at L3-L5 with great success. AND IT WAS COVERED BY INSURANCE co-pay only, not thousands of dollars!!!...

Laser Spine Institute - Florida, Tampa - Overcharge / Underservice

Posted:    Alice in Texas
Complaint Rating:  97 % with 97 votes
I was a chronic pain sufferer (neck pain) and traveled from Texas to Tampa in March 2009 for surgery at LSI. The treatment I received was less than acceptable and the only thing I gained was debt for having this surgery. I had to take $15, 000 out of my (early retirement) because I am only 40!! I learned later that the healthcare services could have been performed for a fraction of the cost that LSI charged, in my local hometown! Their surgery did NOTHING to improve my condition and I left with the same pain, I entered their facility with. My surgeon didn't even have the bedside manner or a...

Laser Spine Institute - Careful! Scam!

Posted:    sherrod
Complaint Rating:  93 % with 172 votes
Be VERY Careful. First find out if this is the standard of care for treatment of your condition. Look up published literature on this! Then, check out the doctors. The "honors" they list are not any major true honors that are recognized by other doctors in the community. Some are random webbased honors that have not been created by official medical governing boards. And check out their board certification. Some of them do not have the standard acceptable board certification by the standard American Board of Orthopedic surgery or American Board of Neurological Surgery. And then check how...

I have been in the medical field for well over 17 years, and this is the first company I have ever worked for that did nothing buy lie to their employees and their patients.

LSI was something that I was hoping to have a career with. During their presentation they give to all new hires, this is a company that speaks highly of family, integrity, their surgeons, employees and would do anything for you. BULL, THIS IS NOT THE CASE. THIS COMPANY IS FAKE AND CARES NOTHING ABOUT YOU.

This company I have watched push people into having surgery. SELL surgery!!! They do not...

Laser Spine Institute - Arizona, Scottsdale - LSI treats their employees like garbage

Complaint Rating:  96 % with 245 votes
I worked for Laser Spine Institute in Scottsdale, AZ. I held a very important and pivotal position within the company and surgery center. When I first began my employment, I thought this was going to be the opportunity of a lifetime…I quickly learned that was not the case.

Let me start off by saying that Laser Spine Institute was started by surgeon James St. Louis. Yes, a surgeon. NOT a business man. Their “businessmen” that “run” the company are nothing but a complete joke – and worst of all, the epitome of a “Good ‘ol Boys Club”....

Laser Spine Institute - You Are Just a Dollar Sign

Complaint Rating:  96 % with 171 votes
I have read many complaints about Laser Spine Institute all over the internet and agree with all the various complaints. I am a former employee of Laser Spine Institute. No, I am not sour grapes. I am very educated and well respected in the medical field.

I have worked for a very long time in the medical field in real surgeon's offices before going to work for LSI. I was not prepared for what Laser Spine Institute really is. I strongly believe that this is a company that is NOT about helping patients get their life back. I strongly believe that this is a company that is about...
