What is it?
The MILD procedure is a safe, effective treatment option that delivers significant pain relief for LSS patients. LSS is a condition where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves in your lower back. As we age, the natural wear and tear on our spine can lead to a number of contributing factors that cause the narrowing of the spinal canal – thickening of ligament tissue, formation of excess bone, or compression/bulging of the discs.
If your doctor determines you have LSS caused by excess ligament, then MILD is a quick outpatient procedure, performed through a tiny incision (about the size of a baby aspirin), requiring no general anesthesia or stitches. MILD is an FDA-cleared procedure that has been performed safely on thousands of patients.
How Long does the Procedure Take?
MILD is an outpatient procedure performed in less than 1 hour.
What are the Expected Results?
Clinical studies show it’s a safe, effective procedure that helps LSS patients stand longer & walk farther with significantly less pain.
