Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression
mild® is a short, outpatient treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) that restores space in the spinal canal to help improve back and leg pain.* Using specialized tools and imaging, mild® addresses a major root cause of LSS by removing thickened ligament through an incision smaller than the size of baby aspirin, leaving no implants behind, only a Band-Aid.
The minimally invasive mild® Procedure has a safety profile similar to epidural steroid injections but with lasting results, and patients typically return to normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions.* mild® is covered nationwide by Medicare (all ages, all plan types, including Medicare Advantage) the VA, U.S. Military & IHS. Commercial coverage varies.
Here is how the mild® Procedure works
The mild® Procedure addresses a major root cause of LSS by removing excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. The mild® Procedure typically takes less than an hour and can be performed through a single, tiny incision.
What are the potential benefits of the mild® Procedure?
mild® may help people diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) stand longer and walk farther with less pain by treating the underlying cause of LSS symptoms in a minimally invasive way.*
Benefits of the mild® Procedure
- Outpatient procedure, typically performed in less than 1 hour
- Patients typically resume normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions*
- Requires no general anesthesia, implants, stitches, steroids, or opioids
- Low complication risk profile and high efficacy profile as demonstrated in clinical studies*
Is the mild® Procedure right for you?
If you suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis and have not found relief from conservative treatments, your doctor may recommend minimally invasive lumbar decompression.
The following questions will help determine if the mild® Procedure is right for you:
- Have you been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS)?
- When you stand or walk upright, do you experience pain or discomfort in your lower back, legs, or buttocks?
- Is your pain or discomfort relieved when you bend forward, sit or lie down?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your next step may be mild®. Whether you were recently diagnosed with LSS, have had surgery, or are getting epidural steroid injections that are no longer providing pain relief, talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate.
