Announcing an Exciting New Technology for Treating Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Do you have back and leg pain that becomes worse with prolonged standing and walking but improved when you sit down? You may be suffering from spinal stenosis.

In the past, we had physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, and then open-surgical decompression surgery when the first two fail. Spine surgery in general is a somewhat risky proposition, especially in the older age group. The success rate for for surgery in many cases has been disappointing. There is always the chance of making the symptoms worse or, in fact, causing other problems, including nerve damage.

Recently, a company called Vertiflex came out with a device called Superion. This is an elegant, minimally-invasive approach to treat moderate spinal stenosis. I am one of the few physicians in the area that has been trained on this technology. It is my belief that this will be a game-changer for many people that suffer from this condition.
