Andrew Ward Jun 26 (1 day ago) to me Laser Spine Institute Dear Michael, We have reviewed your MRI or CT report and are ready to discuss your candidacy for a minimally invasive spine procedure at Laser Spine Institute. Our initial review of your image report revealed one or more of the following condition(s). To learn more, click the video links below: Degenerative Disc Disease Bulging/Herniated Disc Spinal Stenosis Foraminal Narrowing Facet Disease​ Based on these initial findings, Laser Spine Institute considers you a potential candidate for our minimally invasive spinal procedures. A final surgical recommendation can only be made after a complete in-person examination is performed. At that time, your symptoms, exam findings and diagnostic testing will be reviewed in depth by our medical team. As a result of this evaluation, you may be recommended the following minimally invasive procedures with Laser Spine Institute: Foraminotomy: Relieves pressure on the nerve root as it exits the spinal cord. Laminotomy: Relieves pressure on the spinal cord compressed by spinal stenosis. Discectomy: Removes the portion of a herniated or bulging disc that’s pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord. Facet Thermal Ablation : The primary procedure to treat arthritis, and most often performed in conjunction with a decompression, it relieves painful nerves in the facet joint, using a laser. Minimally Invasive Stabilization: Performed using a minimally invasive technique, the damaged disc is removed and implants are inserted to help stabilize the spine. In cases where stabilization is necessary, Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive approach is a safe and effective alternative to traditional open fusion procedures. Feel confident that you’re in good hands -- our minimally invasive spine procedures are performed by experienced surgeons and have significantly lower infection and complication rates than traditional open back surgery. Using a proven minimally invasive approach to spine surgery in an outpatient setting, our procedures require a small incision. Our team wants to get you relief as quickly as possible so you can get back to living your best life. Call me to discuss scheduling your surgery to get the relief you deserve.

My name is Michael Cohen. For my whole life I was self sufficient and worked hard to take care of my family. At the age of 53 I had an Accident with a tractor trailer on the highway while driving.

Because of that accident I had a major back injury and I have not been able to return to work a Full Time in my Job for over 3 years! I was recieving all the treatment that I was able to in order to get back on my feet, inclouding a Fusion last year. Unfortunately, nothing has helped and I'm still living with the same pain levels for close to three years. Over time, I have been getting myself in to tremendous debt with Medical bills, and no income, and regular bills that keep coming can very quickly become major debt as they have for me. Today I need your help to have this Laser Surgey done ASAP in order to get back to work and Support my Family and My Self. Unfortunately, my medical insurance - Medicade does not cover the cost of this procedure and my costs out of pocket would be nearly $15,500!

Please, help me, I want to be self sufficient just like everyone else. I have always worked hard and I am ready to work hard again, but, I need your help to get this life cahgleasengin procedure and to clear up my debts, so I can get off my back and back on my feet!

Thank you!

Michael/Yehuda Cohen.

Laser Spine Institute

Dear Michael:

We have verified the out-of-network benefits of your insurance policy and have discovered that your policy does provide coverage for outpatient facilities like ours.

As a result, your payment at the time of surgery will be $15,500 if you choose to have surgery at our Philadelphia facility.

To begin the process of medical intake and/or scheduling, we will collect a non-refundable deposit of $500 which will be applied to the cost of your surgery. The remaining balance of $15,000 will be required after your full clinical evaluation has been completed and our team has determined that you to be a candidate for our minimally invasive decompression procedures (excluding alternative options).

This will serve as full payment of your surgical procedure as well as any diagnostic testing that is completed within our facility by Laser Spine Institute’s providers. If you require other services that are not provided by Laser Spine Institute, you may be responsible for a portion of these services as outlined by your plan.

At Laser Spine Institute, our goal is to make surgery as affordable as possible — our team is here to work with you every step of the way.

Please call me to discuss your options for relief. I can also provide any information you may need about convenient financing options available to you. 

Sincerely,
