Default Anyone heard of this LSI?

I was on this forum before it blew up for a while. I had an ACDF at C5-C6 in April of 2004. I had some follow up pain and was given a CT-Myelogram to see the surgical site more clearly, and ever since I've been in a hell hole. I have all kinds of crazy things going on in my body, none of which make any sense to any doctors. It's been a long 3 years. Anyway, for the last 3-4 months I had been feeling a little better and had even gotten into a regular exercise routine, something I had missed dearly since the whole incident. I'm 31 years old, and my wife and I were married in September of 2003...6 months before the big bang. I have a decent PM doc, who on Monday gave me an MRI because I now have symptomology of a C6-C7 herniation. It was confirmed today. No herniation into the spinal canal, but definitely on the exiting nerve root down my left side. It's not as bad as my first one, as a couple Tylenol PM's get me to sleep at night, however I'm nervous as hell that this won't heal on it's own.
My question is has anyone here looked into or heard of this new LSI in Florida? The Doctor there is from Wisconsin, which means he's probably smarter than most, LOL. I grew up in Wisconsin and now live in Minneapolis, MN. The reason for my inquiry is that, like all of us, I'm always looking for new hope. This sounds much less invasive, yet it's still surgery. Iwas wondering what the thoughts were. There's a lot of people on the site that have had good responses. I'm very cautious nowaday's though, especially of anything involving surgery. The website is WWW.laserspineinstitute.com. It's all over the web. There's popops on it on almost every major website. Check it out and let me know what you all think. Thanks, and God Bless.

Yeah, Let me know what you think. I find it strange that I'm the only one on this page that has seen the LSI website. It gets a lot of attention up here in the midwest. Thanks for the reply.
