Laser Discectomy was Performed in South Khorasan for the First Time
For the first time in South Khorasan, a laser discectomy was performed by neurosurgeon, university professor, Dr. Kazem Qaemi, on a 47 year olds woman.
The university professor and neurosurgeon explained that today, laser discectomy was performed on a 46 year old woman in her lower back using a laser device". Dr. Kazem Qaemi added: "this patient suffered the pain on her lower back for about a year and the pain was radiated to her left leg".

He said that lower back pain is one of the most common diseases that patients experience and he continued: "according to the MRI results, in this case, the problem was on tailbone but it did not radiate to spinal cord. Therefore, laser surgery was the best choice". This neurosurgeon claimed that: "one of the advantages of this surgery is that it is performed by local anesthesia and there is no need for general anesthesia; and in the case of patients with cardiovascular diseases, it will be an effective method of surgery".
He reminded that this method of surgery lasts about 30 to 40 minutes and bleeding and infection have zero probability of happening.
Dr. Qaemi added: "the patient is hospitalized less than 6 or 7 hours for this surgery and then he or she is discharged". He reminded that laser surgeries are performed in Tehran, Esfahan, Mashhad and Shiraz hospitals and we are glad to announce that today, this surgery was performed in Razi Hospital in Birjand. The neurosurgeon said: "I'm going to use my experiences that I've earned already by passing courses in Germany and I want to put them into operation". He told that the laser surgery is performed by doctor's diagnosis and then he continued: "I had performed about 70 to 80 brain tumor surgeries in Razi Hospital in Birjand and this hospital has ultimate educational advantages for resident doctors".

Dr. Qaemi reminded that by performing this surgery in Razi Hospital in Birjand, there is no need to transfer patients to other provinces. He said: "laser surgery costs a fortune in private medical centers, but in Razi hospital, patients can pay the least amount of money by using insurance". He added: "neurosurgery operating room in Razi Hospital in Birjand is completely equipped and the microscopes used in this hospital are equal to Germany's hospitals regarding their quality". The neurosurgeon emphasized that considering treatment and surgery for neurosurgery cases, there is no patients' transferring to other provinces and medical centers and we turned this province to a neurosurgery hub in the country. He said: "laser surgery for cervical disc and lumbar discectomy are performed in this province and we hope to perform surgeries for patients of other countries, here in Razi Hospital in Birjand"s.
