Here’s What Worker’s Compensation Professionals Expect From Your Physician

It's not encrypted and it's not Top Secret, but it is code. CRIS: The code for success of Deuk Laser Disc Repair.

We provide second opinion and independent medical evaluations for Workers' Compensation adjusters and nurse case managers. Work Comp professionals increasingly have turned to Deuk Spine Institute for treatment of their patients because of our 95% success in resolving back and neck pain.

The criteria these Work Comp professionals use is CRIS: Cost, Return to Work, Impairment Rating, and Safety.


Help us manage the cost of healthcare for our patients. Providing Work Comp adjusters with Deuk Laser Disc Repair® as an option to traditional spinal fusion saves 30 to 55% over the cost of hospital charges. The minimally invasive procedure is outpatient and requires no metal implants.

Return to Work

Help us get our patients back to their life and back to work more quickly than the many months it often takes fusion patients to get back on the job. Deuk Laser Disc Repair® allows patients to be back on the job in one to three days. No heavy lifting for six weeks, but back on the job and productive again.

Impairment Rating

Help us manage the long-term impacts of treatments and outcome success and keep the permanent impairment of our patients to a minimum. Fusion surgery leaves a patient with a permanent impairment rating of 12 to 25% versus only 6 to 8% with Deuk Laser Disc Repair®.


Give us a solution for our patients' back and neck pain that passes every test of medical efficacy and stringent safety protocols. Deuk Laser Disc Repair® is the safest, most reliable treatment for painful herniated or bulging discs and has less than 1/2 of one percent rate of infection and a zero rate of complications.

Work Comp professionals are turning to Deuk Spine Institute for their patients because of exacting Work Comp requirements — summarized by the CRIS code. The code works for those injured on the job, but it also serves as a Rosetta Stone for every segment — a universal code for success in resolving back and neck pain: Deuk Laser Disc Repair®.
