What Is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?
LSS is a common condition typically in adults over 50 years of age that occurs when the spinal canal narrows and puts pressure on the spine and spinal nerve roots in the lower back. This condition paves the way for many complications that detract from your comfort throughout any given day, from pain and numbness in the back, legs, and buttocks to general weakness and trouble walking. LSS develops through many factors, including age, family health history, and injury.

The MILD Procedure – What It Is & How It Works
MILD treatment is a low-risk, outpatient procedure specifically designed to relieve the symptoms of spinal stenosis without the need for invasive surgical treatment methods. During the procedure, a tiny, single incision no bigger than the size of a baby aspirin is made in your lower back. We then use an advanced imaging machine and specialized tools to restore space in your spinal canal by safely removing small amounts of bone and thickened tissue that put unwanted pressure on your nerves.
MILD stenosis treatment helps provide long-lasting results in eliminating your pain and significantly improving your mobility with a much faster recovery time compared to traditional surgery.
What to Expect During & After MILD Treatment
The MILD procedure itself typically takes less than an hour to complete. Many patients who undergo MILD treatment experience immediate relief from their symptoms like back pain and discomfort caused by walking and standing for long periods of time. Because the procedure is performed relatively quickly and requires only a small, minimally-invasive incision, no unnecessary trauma is caused to the surrounding tissue, allowing patients to return home directly after treatment and regain an active lifestyle.
