Information for Doctors

OrthoLazer is an exclusive business opportunity for select orthopedic surgeons to generate passive income while offering their patients an effective, alternative pain management option to treat acute and chronic orthopedic conditions. OrthoLazer Orthopedic Laser Centers was founded by Dr. Scott A. Sigman – the original opioid-sparing surgeon – to further his mission of providing his patients non-operative and non-opioid treatment options. The overwhelming success of Dr. Sigman’s first OrthoLazer Center led to the development of the OrthoLazer Center Franchise business model. OrthoLazer is now accepting franchisee applications in select cities nationwide.

Conditions Treated

OrthoLazer Centers offer a new approach to the treatment of acute and chronic conditions by using a proprietary and patented laser technology to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with a variety of chronic and acute conditions. This includes tough-to-treat issues like IT band tendinitis, tennis elbow, calcific tendinitis, meniscal tears, and plantar fasciitis.

Exclusive Technology

The technology, available exclusively to OrthoLazer Centers, is the MLS M8 Robotic Laser – the most advanced therapy laser in the market today. The FDA-cleared MLS M8 Robotic Laser reduces inflammation and pain with no negative side effects. The MLS M8 Robotic Laser is the only fully automated high powered Class IV laser which does not generate debilitating heat. The innovative design allows for unattended operation maximizing office efficiencies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser energy produces changes in oxidation/reduction status of the mitochondria which lead to dramatic increases in ATP synthesis. Activation of the sodium/potassium pump alters the cell membrane permeability to calcium. Laser therapy has been shown to effect cellular activity in the following ways: stimulate cell growth, increase cell metabolism, improve cell regeneration, produce an anti-inflammatory response, produce an edema reduction, reduce fibrous tissue formation, stimulate nerve function, reduce the production of Substance P, and stimulate long-term production of nitric oxide.

The patented MLS M8 Robotic Laser was developed as a result of nearly three decades of scientific research that studied the biological and therapeutic effects of different emission components and methods. The Departments of Biology at both the University of Turin (Italy) and the University of Padova (Brazil), as well as the Department of Anatomy and the Orthopedic Clinic at the University of Padova, have studied and verified the unique effectiveness of MLS M8 Robotic Laser Therapy. There have been more than 2,500 published studies worldwide involving low-level laser therapy, with approximately 120 double-blind studies publi

The MLS M8 Robotic Therapy Laser is free from any known side effects and has few contraindications. It is, therefore, safe to use for the majority of patients suffering from acute and chronic orthopedic conditions, as well as patients seeking to recover from surgery more quickly. Acute patients typically require 6 treatments over 2-3 weeks. Chronic patients are usually treated 7-10 times over 3-4 weeks. Treatment times range from 4-10 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.

Regulations vary by state and should be closely examined by potential franchisees, however, the majority of states require only a properly trained medical assistant to operate the laser.
