What is Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (mild®)?

The mild® procedure is a minimally invasive treatment designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by LSS. This condition often results from age-related changes in the spine, arthritis, pre-existing medical conditions, or inherited conditions. Instead of relying on pain medications or traditional surgery, mild® offers a popular alternative that directly addresses the root cause of your pain.

How Does mild® Work?

The mild® procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort. We make a small incision to access the affected area and use a specialized tool to remove excess tissue constricting the spinal canal. By creating more space, the pressure on the nerves is relieved, which leads to reduced pain and improved mobility.

Are You Struggling With Low Back Pain, Walking, or Numbness?

Low back pain, difficulty walking, and numbness in the legs are common symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis. Back pain may limit your ability to stand or sit comfortably, while numbness and weakness can make walking or standing a struggle. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s essential to seek medical care to regain your mobility and quality of life.

Causes of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Understanding these underlying factors is crucial in tailoring an effective treatment plan for each patient’s situation. Lumbar spinal stenosis can result from various factors, including:

  • Age-related changes in the spine: As we age, the spine undergoes degenerative changes that can lead to LSS.
  • Arthritis: Arthritic conditions can cause inflammation and tissue changes that narrow the spinal canal.
  • Pre-existing medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or obesity, can increase the risk of LSS.
  • Inherited conditions: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to developing LSS.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a Candidate for the mild® Procedure?

The mild® spine procedure suits patients diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) who have not found relief from conservative treatments. To determine if you are a candidate, consult with one of our specialists for a thorough evaluation.

What is the Success Rate of the mild® Procedure?

The mild® procedure has shown a high success rate in relieving the symptoms of LSS. However, individual results may vary, and consulting with our experts is essential to understand how the procedure can benefit you personally.

What is the Difference Between mild® and Traditional Back Surgery?

Unlike traditional open back surgery involving larger incisions and longer recovery times, the mild® procedure is minimally invasive. Rather than using sutures as in traditional surgery, the small size of the incision site requires only a sterile dressing. This results in faster recovery, less postoperative discomfort, and reduced scarring.

What is the Best Treatment for LSS?

The best lumbar spinal stenosis treatment depends on the individual's condition and needs. While the mild® procedure offers a highly effective minimally invasive option, other treatments such as pain medication, physical therapy, epidural injections, and lifestyle modifications will also be considered. Our experts will help you determine the most suitable approach to alleviate your symptoms.
