Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery offers laser therapy in the Utica area with the dual goal of treating patient pain without injections or surgery while minimizing reliance on potentially habit-forming drugs. The addition of this exciting and effective technology is part of CNY Brain and Spine’s continued investment in advanced technologies and progressive procedures in the treatment of neck, back, joint pain (elbow, shoulder, knee) and headache.Laser therapy has been used effectively for many years, but advances in technology have produced “the next generation of laser therapy” with the new MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Therapy Laser which uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. With laser therapy, Dr. Nicholas Qandah, can offer relief to those suffering with both chronic and acute ailments such as back and joint pain, tendonitis, arthritis, disc disease and sprains and strains.

Laser therapy is painless, with treatments usually lasting several minutes, and most patients see positive results in just 1-3 treatments.“We are very excited to be able to offer this new and dramatic treatment option to patients,” Dr. Q said.“When a physical condition or injury affects mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: a rapid return to every-day activities. We now have the most advanced equipment on the market to deliver these results; results that include a very rapid reduction in pain, strong anti-inflammatory effect, and immediate improvement of local blood circulation.”“More and more, our patients are looking for effective treatment options that are less invasive, have no side effects, provide rapid results and speed the healing process,” said Dr. Q. “Laser therapy provides us with an opportunity to meet the needs of our patients, and offer the highest levels of care possible. We pride ourselves on staying on the leading edge of technology, and educating our patients on the various levels of care available. Laser therapy is the future of the pain management industry, and we feel our patients deserve to have that option when choosing the best care for themselves.”

“Our family has a history sciatica. During my collegiate and professional baseball career it would occasionally flare. About a year ago, it began in full force. For some time, I was nearly immobilized, compromising my work and entire lifestyle. After my initial laser treatment I noticed a remarkable improvement and after my second laser treatment I was “pain free” and have been for the past four months. Anyone who is suffering with a nerve malady should give Dr. Qandah’s laser treatment a try. It has improved my life immensely.”
