About CuraLase

CuraLase has treated more patients and manufactured more resonator lasers than anyone in the Photobiomedical industry. CuraLase clinics has administered over 100,000 treatments to over 8,000 patients from 44 states and 31 countries, establishing an international reputation for exceptional patient care. Achieving over a 90% success rate, CuraLase offers a non-invasive treatment option to individuals with pain. CuraLase delivers a pathway for patients to “get their quality of life back.”




Why CuraLase?

The CuraLase crystal controlled frequency laser produces a monochromatic, coherent beam, which delivers the most pure, powerful, fastest and deepest penetrating source of energy to the cells. This separates and distinguishes CuraLase from all the diode and LED devices on today’s market. From a specific wavelength, CuraLase is a painless, non-invasive and therapeutic way to deliver photons to the cells in deep tissue, which relieves pain while accelerating the healing process.

The CuraLase History

Since its founding in 2005, CuraLase has been an innovator in non-invasive laser treatment for a multitude of painful conditions. Roger Porter, inventor and engineer, was seeking an alternative treatment for a family member’s excruciating pain from rheumatoid arthritis when he met Frank G. McArthur, MD. Dr. McArthur was the Medical Director of the largest chain of rehab hospitals in the World (Health South). Working together, Porter and McArthur researched and developed an innovative laser device and initial protocols. In December 2005, the CuraLase device was FDA cleared for its use and sales. The FDA rated the CL1000 with the safest classification awarded to any treatment modality – Non-Significant Risk. The first clinic opened in March 2006 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Porter and a team of seven physicians refined the initial treatment protocols and developed new treatment protocols with great success.

The CuraLase technology is protected by four patents.


Photobiomodulation Therapy is a form of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources, including lasers, LEDs, and broad-band light in the visible and infrared spectrum. It is a non-thermal process involving endogenous chromophores eliciting photophysical (i.e. linear and non-linear) and photochemical events at various biological scales. This process results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including but not limited to the alleviation of pain or in immunomodulation and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration. ”Photobiomodulation, at the cellular level, delivers light energy, stimulating the cells to regenerate and undergo self-repair. Each cell has mitochondria, which performs the function of converting energy to “ATP”. This production process involves the respiratory chain. A mitochondrial enzyme called cytochrome oxidase-c then accepts photonic energy when functioning less than optimal levels.

Photobiomodulation and Stem Cells




Harvard’s groundbreaking new research in the use of lasers to stimulate stem cells to regrow tissue is generating interest and excitement throughout the medical community.

The mechanistic basis for photobiomodulation therapy of neuropathic pain by near infrared laser light.

A combination therapy is proposed to treat neuropathic pain with initial high irradiance/fluence rates for fast pain relief, followed by low irradiance/fluence rates for prolonged pain relief by altering chronic inflammation.

Role of Low-Level Laser Therapy in Neurorehabilitation

LLLT has no reported adverse effects, and no reports of adverse events can be directly attributed to laser or light therapy.

Photobiomodulation of the dorsal root ganglion for the treatment of low back pain.

Laser irradiation caused an immediate decrease in low back pain post-procedure similar to pain reduction caused by lidocaine injection.


CuraLase was awarded FDA clearance in 2005.

The CuraLase Laser System has FDA clearance to treat patients for pain. Since opening the first clinic 13 years ago, CuraLase has treated over 8,000 patients with a 90% success rate of reducing or relieving pain with no adverse side effects.


Here is what CuraLase patients are saying:


Lymphedema – Osteoarthritis – Peripheral Neuropathy

“For almost 20 years, I lived with aches and pains in both my legs. In the last five years, the pain had reached the point that I had extreme difficulty in walking, climbing stairs and even standing up after sitting for any length of time. My right leg and ankle would stay swollen, and my doctor said I would have to live with these conditions. In June 2006, I started CuraLase treatments on both knees, right leg and right ankle with INCREDIBLE reduction in the swelling and pain. I am getting around normally without any pain at all. I am now able to walk and play nine holes of golf almost every day.”


Fractured Tailbone

“I fractured my tailbone 20 months ago and cannot sit down without a bolt of pain shooting through my body unless I sit on a special cushion with a hole in the back to relieve the pressure of sitting directly on my coccyx. I have been to a GP physician who referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, who decided a month ago that surgery was my only option. I had almost given up hope of ever sitting without pain again when I heard about CuraLase. After my first 20-minute treatment 50% of my pain was gone. It was a miracle and an answer to prayer! After the 2nd it was 85% better and remains at that level. Thank you for inventing this wonderful form of relief from pain.”



“I am 78 years old and was diagnosed with sever Osteoporosis. I fell recently resulting in a fractured hip and was told I was inoperable. My pain was constant requiring strong medication of oxycodone and other drugs until my ability to get out of bed was not possible. My pain levels were at a constant 10 until medicated beyond the ability to function. After my treatments from CuraLase, my pain levels have been reduced to 0 and my medication has been cut in half allowing me to get out and be active. I used to sleep all day and have to be pushed around in a wheelchair….now I don’t even need my cane. The staff at CuraLase are wonderful and they really care. CuraLase is excellent, I can enjoy life again.”


Trigeminal Neuralgia

“I am a motivational speaker and counselor and I have been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia, an illness of excruciating pain and for which there is no known cure. I discovered LaserMeds and the laser treatments have been LIFE SAVING for me. In a very short time I have gone from not being able to function at all to being able to live my life to the fullest.”
