In 2019, as a busy orthopedic surgeon, I never imagined that the post-operative pain medications I prescribed could possibly harm my surgery patients.
But during that time I watched the opioid epidemic sweep through my community.
It was impossible to ignore, especially since my wife– who was the local florist – was tasked with creating funeral flower arrangements for people who died from opioid overdoses.
It was heartbreaking.
It struck me that some people were exposed to opioids for the very first time following surgery.It was then I vowed to do everything in my power to find a better, safer way to relieve pain.
I began researching the over 2500 studies on laser therapy and its ability to reduce inflammation, reduce pain and support healing. I purchased an FDA-cleared MLS laser for my own practice and was astounded at how well patients responded to laser therapy.
It was then I worked to establish the OrthoLazer Orthopedic Laser Therapy franchise.
I knew that laser therapy was a drug-free solution that every community in America needed.
Today, you can find 18 OrthoLazer laser therapy centers in more than 8 states. Led by our 100 physician owners, our Centers have provided over 90,000 treatments and helped change lives for patients without opioids, injections or side effects.
Our mission at OrthoLazer is to keep every body moving pain free and to champion their personal success. We honor and support each patient’s goal–whether that’s playing high school soccer, enjoying walks with grandchildren, or just sleeping through the night without pain.
We look forward to helping you, too.
“This place gave me my life back. I have had chronic knee pain for years and thought my only hope was surgery. After 12 visits I haven’t had any knee pain since. I highly recommend this place to everyone!!!”
“I would highly recommend OrthoLazer! I’m amazed at how fast my recovery was after hip replacement. I loved everything about the location and office staff!”
“I had been dealing with severe heel spur pain for over three and half years. Steroid shots and new arch supports did nothing to bring any comfort or relief. After my first visit I felt this was the right choice for me. 10 visits in and I went for my first run in five years!!!!! Wow I will be back for whatever my body needs in the future after I wrap up these sessions. Thank you OrthoLazer for giving me my mobility back!!! Game changer!!!!!”
“My surgeon recommended 6 treatments after total knee replacement and I am glad I did. It has helped in the healing and I am a week ahead of where I should be in my physical therapy. The entire staff is welcoming and efficient. A very positive experience.”
