Laser Spine Institute Closes
Laser Spine Closes its doors
Laser Spine started in Tampa on March 16, 2016 with three doctors, one operation room, and nine employees. They outgrew their facility and expanded to Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, and Scottsdale Arizona. After growing so rapidly they expanded again in Tampa, Florida to Avion park near the Tampa International Airport. The 176,000 square-foot building that cost $56million to build was not the end of their expansion. In the later months they opened in St. Louis and Cincinnati. The growth must have been extremely quick.
Here are some of the things they advertised:
- No Lengthy Recovery Time
- Board-Certified Surgeons
- Patient Satisfaction Score of 98
- Less Than 1-inch incision
- Outpatient Procedure
- 98 out of 100 recommendation rate
On Friday March 1, 2019 Laser Spine Institute officially closed its doors, fired all of their employees and told them to leave without letting anyone know ahead of time. More than 500 employees lost their jobs. It is unfortunate for all the families that were affected by the sudden closings and for all the patients that flew in from all around the world expecting to get their back pain fixed by a spine surgeon. Many patients that flew to Tampa for spine surgery are now in disbelief and are now out of pocket money from not working, hotel money, and food money.
Where should all the patients go?
