Patient FAQs

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat conditions in the body. Our MLS laser was specifically designed with particular wavelengths to treat pain and inflammation.

Multi-wave Locked System. Our patent laser device uses 808nm and 905 nm wavelengths at the same time in a locked delivery system. The wavelengths fire at the same time to promote better healing and faster results.

When laser therapy was first introduced, it was nicknamed “cold laser” to distinguish it from other lasers that cut or burn the skin like those used in surgery. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses specific wavelengths of near infrared (NIR) light to promote tissue healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation and swelling. The lasers aren’t actually cold, they simply don’t generate perceptible heat. Cold laser generally referred to older lasers that are typically Class III devices. MLS is a highly more advanced Class IV robotic laser device that doesn’t generate perceptible heat.
The two wavelengths our laser emits safely penetrate through the skin and are absorbed by tissues and cells in the body. The energy is used by mitochondria (organelle in the cell) to create cellular energy called ATP. The laser also brings blood flow to the treatment area, which brings with it oxygen and nutrients.
Average treatment time is approximately 10 minutes with the laser. Depending on your condition, you may have a shorter or longer time under the laser to achieve the optimal treatment application.
Based on your condition, your doctor will be able to recommend proper treatments. Common treatments are either 6 visits (acute condition) or 10 visits (chronic condition). Laser therapy is cumulative and builds on previous sessions, much like taking an antibiotic. Most patients experience a gradual improvement in their pain and inflammation as the laser treatment plan progresses. Therefore, it’s important that you complete the entire course of treatments recommended by your doctor. If you discontinue the treatment prior to completing the entire course of care, your symptoms are likely to reoccur.
MLS M8 Laser Therapy treatments are painless, and most patients don’t feel any sensation during treatment. The laser needs to shine directly on your skin so wear lose, comfortable clothing that you can adjust if needed. The office will also be able to provide disposable gowns or shorts if necessary. Most patients will be seated or lying down for their treatment. We will do our best to ensure your comfort throughout the entire treatment. Our staff is specifically trained to ensure optimal patient outcomes and comfort.
We recommend patients go about their lives like normal after laser therapy. However, since the laser decreases pain, don’t jump into too much activity too fast that your body isn’t ready for. Also, avoid icing the area for at least 8 hours after the completion of your visit. If you have a scheduled Physical Therapy, Chiropractor, Occupational Therapy, etc. visit, we recommend you keep your scheduled care with them as well. If you have any questions, please ask us!
Like any medical intervention, laser therapy has potential possible side effects, and each person may respond differently. However, there are currently no known side effects with MLS Laser Therapy.
MLS M8 robotic laser therapy is FDA cleared for the relief of pain, inflammation, and swelling.
No, MLS Laser Therapy is not covered by insurance. We take flexible spending (for example HSA & FSA).

A year ago, after much anticipation, my partners (Dr. William Pennington, Dr. Daniel Guehlstorf, Dr. Eric Pifel, Dr. Chris Evanich, Dr. Thomas Perlewitz, Dr. Thomas Parisi, and Dr. Jamie Edwards) and I announced that we would be opening the first OrthoLazer Clinic in the Midwest utilizing the MLS M8 laser, the strongest on the market, to help treat patients struggling with pain and inflammation. Three months later, we opened our doors to help those with acute traumas, chronic tears and degenerative arthritis, as well as post-operative patients looking to get back in action sooner. Thank you to all who have supported myself and my team along the way. We can't thank you enough! Welcome to our OrthoLazer World! ... See MoreSee Less

OrthoLazer is a blessing. Very grateful you are in our area. The entire team there has been amazing and very helpful with some chronic injuries that I have!

I would never go out of this group for orthopedic care. I trust everyone of the Doctors. I was very satisfied with the results from ortho lazer. I refer all of my friends, co-workers and family to OIW and now ortho lazer. There isn't a better group in the area.

I couldn’t be more happy with the results after cortisone shots no longer worked for me! Highly recommend this new technology!

The first OrthoLazer treatment I received was 4 days after my reverse total shoulder replacement. Two different strong opioids were not controlling my pain and it was suggested that I try OrthoLazer treatment. After the first treatment, 95% of my pain, stiffness and soreness was gone. I only needed tylenol after this first treatment to control my pain. I had fantastic results; I called it a miracle. I also had great results with OrthoLazer treatments for chronic pain and faster healing of wounds. I strongly recommend this treatment for anyone with acute or chronic pain, injuries, inflammation, wounds and faster healing.

Laser treatments at Ortholazer helped me before and after my rotator cuff surgery. After experiencing extreme and prolonged pain in my shoulder, an x-ray showed calcification buildup in my shoulder tendon that appeared larger since the last x-ray three years ago. An MRI also showed a spur. I was informed that further cortisone shots probably would not be effective. I chose to have surgery, but I inquired whether Ortholazer treatments would reduce the severe pain. Dr. Pennington, my surgeon, believed laser treatments would help but also informed me that Medicare would not cover the costs. I was able and willing to pay so he called and scheduled an appointment for the same day. After nine treatments in less than a month my pain level went from a 10 to about a 2. Instead of taking about 20+ pain pills a week, I needed only 3 Advil / Tylenol the week before surgery. The treatments were so effective that I canceled the last three treatments and had them rescheduled after surgery. Two weeks out from surgery, I told Melissa, the Ortholazer technician, that I had been unable to sleep in my bed because of severe shoulder back pain. She used a laser wand on the back of my shoulder during my treatment. Within 24 hours, the pain in that area was so diminished that I could finally sleep in bed. I’m currently three weeks out from surgery and still receiving laser treatments to reduce pain and enhance the healing process. I began my physical therapy sessions today.

The staff at OrthoLazer are extremely knowledgeable at using the lazer to get the best results. This new technology helped my swelling and recovery after knee surgery go quicker. I would recommend this treatment to anyone.

I recently had rotator cuff surgery for the 3rd time on my (R) shoulder. This was my first opportunity to use the OrthoLazer procedure. I was impressed how I felt after my first 3 treatments. By my last 3 treatments, I felt great! Considering the pain I remembered from my previous surgeries, I couldn’t believe the difference. I was given pain meds to cope with the discomfort. I was able to minimize taking them as prescribed, to taking as needed for pain. I believe the treatments help reduce scarring, inflammation and also speed up the healing process. I am now 6 weeks post surgery and I feel minimal pain in my shoulder. After my previous surgeries, I had to wait at least two to three months before I had pain relief like this. I feel that the OrthoLazer treatments are well worth the cost. The staff are professional, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable.

This is Beverly Krawczak-Williams and dancing dealt me a nasty partial tear in my right hip. I learned of ortholazer treatment from my doctor and started both therapy and lazer treatments in the same week. I was so glad that I combined these treatments as I feel that the lazer quickly helped to reduce my pain and inflammation in the area that was traumatized while the PT has gotten me stronger. The target hits with the lazer wand also focused on other nearby areas that were causing issues. I am so pleased that I agreed to combine these treatments and avoid surgery. I also want to mention that the staff at the facility is wonderful and they truly care about you and your recovery.

For several years, I continually injure my back in which the last resort to alleviate the pain was with a series of epidural shots. After my most recent injury my doctor recommended OrthoLaser treatments. Even though it was not covered by insurance, it was worth every penny spent. I have no pain! It’s like a miracle! I recommend it to everyone who has been living with pain. This treatment. Is painless and life changing!

OrthoLazer has been a huge part of my recovery from ACL replacement surgery. I get treated by Amie, who is an absolute delight. I always look forward to chatting during our brief sessions. I believe the treatment helped my knee (and the wounds) heal faster and better than they would have without it. At four weeks post surgery I was told by my surgeon’s PA that I was ahead of the curve in terms of how my knee was looking. I plan on continuing to do maintenance sessions throughout my recovery. Thanks Ortholazer for helping get me back up and running!

I was in constant pain from my swollen knee with a meniscus tear for over a year. The only relief came from daily over the counter pain medication such as Aleve. My doctor suggested I try the OrthoLazer treatments to avoid another surgery and the down time associated with recovery. I have never been happier with my decision to try these treatments. The swelling has diminished, I am no longer taking any pain medication except for an occasional headache and I am able to function again without limitations. My treatments required no downtime and were painless. OrthoLazer treatments has given me my life back without pain. Many thanks to the amazing staff for their concerns, knowledge, kindness, and professionalism they showed me each and every visit.

I started running again after some time off and began experiencing hip pain that I just dealt with for 8 long months before finally reaching the end of my rope. I made an appointment with an orthopedic doctor (Dr. Evanich), and he recommended I try OrthoLazer. I was incredibly skeptical, especially given its more recent FDA approval and the fact that insurance does not cover any of the treatments. Given my age, I really didn’t want to go the injection or surgery route right off the bat, so I decided to give it a shot. About halfway through my 12 laser treatments I started noticing a huge difference. I went from being in agony after a full day with no activity other than just being on my feet, to being able to hop on a spin bike and ride 7+ intense miles with absolutely no pain, stiffness, or aching at all! I have just completed my treatment plan and feel almost 100% back to my old self. I don’t think I’ll try running again anytime soon, but going from not even being able to walk without pain, to being able to workout and function normally has been beyond amazing. So amazing that I am actually hoping to do a different treatment plan for some foot issues I’ve been having for years! Everyone from the receptionist to the laser technicians were fantastic! Thanks OrthoLazer Milwaukee!

So impressed with all of the staff! Super professional! Service was fantastic, went in with a lot of pain and swelling in my knee, 6 treatment later, and left with almost all range of motion back, reduced swelling and very low pain levels! Highly highly recommend!

The OrthoLazer Clinic provides patients with a alternative that must be considered for joint pain. I must admit that I was skeptical about using this cold laser treatment but I was at the point of either daily medication or surgery. I’m so happy I tried this alternative treatment. My pain was unbearable and constant. I signed up for 12 treatments and after 4 treatments I started to notice a difference, after six the pain was almost nonexistent. I’m done with my 12 treatments and I’m completely pain free.The staff at the Franklin location is friendly and professional and the facility is clean and inviting. The employees went out of their way to make sure I felt comfortable with the procedure and that I knew what was happening every step of the way. This is a painless treatment that really worked for me.

I wish I had taken a picture before I started my treatment so there could be a before and after picture – it’s crazy! I didn’t expect to see a physical difference in my knees but they look less swollen and my pain is significantly better.My workouts (mostly running and yoga) really damaged my knees. I felt pain walking up the stairs and would have to lean on the railing. I also had to alter my workouts because my knees were in so much pain. Now I can walk up the stairs with no problem, and can go back to my yoga classes without feeling pain.I didn’t feel relief until about my third treatment, which is normal. I am 26, and really happy I got this treatment right away. The entire staff is excellent. They all want to create the best treatment plan for you to heal.Highly recommend!! There really isn’t any place like it!
