Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression

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.

  • Specialized tools are inserted through a tiny incision in your back.
  • This removes small pieces of bone and excess ligament that cause the narrowing of the canal.
  • Some doctors have described treating LSS as being similar to “removing a kink in a drinking straw”.
  • An imaging machine is used to help guide your physician through the procedure.
  • Restoration of space in the spinal canal decreases the compression of the nerves.
  • This reduces pain and restores mobility.

MILD is an outpatient procedure performed in less than 1 hour and clinical studies show it’s a safe, effective procedure that helps patients stand longer & walk farther with significantly less pain. Some additional points about MILD to consider:

  • No general anesthesia required.
  • No implants or stitches.

  • 53% pain reduction.
  • Standing time increase from 8 to 56 minutes.
  • Walking distance increase from 246 to 3,956 feet.
