First and Only-of-its-Kind, Modern Alternative to Spinal Fusion and Outdated Laser Surgeries Offered in Florida

January 19, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Melbourne, FL--Did you know 80% of the world experiences some kind of neck or back issue? Many of those are afflicted by chronic neck or back pain on a daily basis, which can be completely debilitating. Pain pills, intense physical therapy or even ongoing chiropractic care are how many mistakenly “treat” this very solvable issue. People no longer need to live with back or neck pain. A board certified neuro-surgeon outside of Orlando, Florida, developed a cure that is saving quality-of-life. It’s called the Deuk Laser Disc Repair® and is the development of Dr. Ara Deukmedjian or “Dr. Deuk” of Florida’s Deuk Spine Institute. Deukmedjian_scrubs_lab_coat_1_edited-2_close_head_shot.jpg

 Dr. Deuk is a board certified, peer reviewed neuro-spine surgeon and field pioneer with a focus on truly minimally invasive laser and endoscopic back and neck pain treatment. He serves as CEO and Medical Director at Deuk Spine Institute, in Melbourne, FL, where he performs the revolutionary procedure that bears his name, the Deuk Laser Disc Repair®.

 He developed the Deuk Laser Disc Repair®, including the tools used in the procedure, after recognizing a desperate need for improvement in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery. He traveled the world to study emerging surgical technologies and procedures and developed his own unique method of using laser technology to heal the spine. He has personally performed over 2,000 cervical decompressive discectomies and treated over 1,000 herniated or degenerated lumbar discs with no major complications in addition to over 300 laser spine surgeries with a 95% success rate in elimination of pain.

 Deuk Laser Disc Repair® is performed while patients relax under twilight sedation. An endoscope and live imaging are used to visualize the damaged disc. Using a precision laser, Dr. Deuk expertly removes only the damaged disc tissue causing pain and discomfort. After surgery, patients wake up to immediate relief and a surgical scar so small it can be covered with a 1-inch-by-1-inch Band-Aid.

 “Deuk Laser Disc Repair® is performed with such a small incision-the size of a thumbnail-and unlike all other spinal surgery, there is no collateral damage to normal spinal structures and does not tear muscle; therefore, it is the only spinal surgery that can be performed without the use of narcotic painkillers either during surgery or recovery,” explains Dr. Deuk. “After Deuk Laser Disc Repair® has been performed, patients recover with mild painkillers such as Tylenol and ibuprofen. Rarely do patients undergoing Deuk Laser Disc Repair® need strong prescription pain medication after surgery. Other types of spinal surgery require the use of powerful and addicting pain medication usually for months or even years after treatment. Deuk Laser Disc Repair® is so gentle these dangerous painkillers are not needed or prescribed.”

 This truly minimally invasive procedure can finally enable a patient’s return to the activities they love in often just a day. It is also safer and more effective than any other treatment in the world for many conditions affecting the spine and has a 95% success rate for elimination of pain. Whether a patient is suffering from a herniated disc impinging on their nerves and sending pain into their legs and feet or they have a degenerated disc in their neck causing headaches and pain in their shoulders or arms, they could be pain free in a matter of days after this outpatient treatment – and with little to no pain medication.

 “We’re very excited about this technology and we want more people to benefit from it,” says Dr. Ara Deukmedjian. Dr. Deuk is so confident in the results of Deuk Laser Disc Repair® that he is the first surgeon in his field to offer a surgical warranty.
