The MILD procedure, or minimally invasive lumbar decompression, is an outpatient procedure done to safely and effectively treat a common cause of low back and leg pain called lumbar spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal. It is performed through a very small incision (about the size of a baby aspirin) that requires no general anesthesia, no implants and no stitches.
The Vertiflex Procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option for lumbar spinal stenosis. The procedure uses a small, titanium alloy spacer which serves as an extension blocker designed to relieve pressure on the affected nerves. The Vertiflex Procedure helps minimize the effects of spinal degeneration while fully preserving the patient’s anatomy.
