Vertiflex

Individuals with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), narrowing of the spinal canal and compression of nerves, may benefit from Vertiflex procedures. Due to arthritis, LSS occurs naturally with age but can also be due to injury. It is associated with weakness, pain, cramping, and numbness in the legs.

During this minimally invasive procedure, a small device is placed between spinous processes: thin, bony projections on the back of the spine. Doing so creates more space in the spinal canal and relieves pressure from nearby nerves. Unlike other procedures, such as MILD, no bone or ligaments are removed.

This leads to quick recovery and less trauma to muscles and other structures.
