mild® is a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). It is a proprietary technology that is a safe outpatient procedure.
mild® is designed to restore space in the spinal canal through an incision smaller than the size of a baby aspirin.
The mild procedure is an advanced outpatient procedure that treats lumbar spinal stenosis. Unlike other surgical treatment options for lumbar spinal stenosis, the mild procedure does not require large incisions, stitches, general anesthesia, or implants. Also, no steroids or opioids are needed.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION (mild®) PROCEDURE: WHAT IS IT AND IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
Are you one of over two million patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) annually nationwide?
If so, you’re likely experiencing pain or numbness in your lower back when standing upright; pain, numbness, heaviness or tingling in your upper legs or buttocks when walking and pain when sleeping. The pain can become more common the older you get.
In fact, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is prevalent in about 20% of patients ages 60+ nationwide. Temporary relief is often found when sitting or bending forward, or by curling into a fetal position when lying down.
There are, however, other ways to relieve this pain and get back to what matters to you most! If your current treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) isn’t providing you adequate relief, consider minimally invasive lumbar decompression (mild®) as your next step.
WHAT IS LSS?
A condition in which the lower spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal nerves in the lower back
Best visualized as a “kink in a drinking straw,” this compression can contribute to pain and mobility issues
HOW COMMON IS LSS?
Over two million LSS patients nationwide are diagnosed and treated annually
Generally found in people over the age of 50
The likelihood of developing LSS increases with age
