The Vertiflex Superion® in Newport Beach
Designed for Long-Term Back Pain Relief
Regenerative Institute of Newport Beach is redefining the way we treat Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) for patients. That is why we are proud to offer a new technology through the Vertiflex Superion® Interspinous Spacer; an FDA approved system designed to relieve back pain by restoring the normal space between the vertebrae, and since it’s a minimally-invasive procedure it’s also the perfect solution for patients who’ve been unsuccessful with medications or injections.
What Is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?
LSS is a condition caused by the way your spinal canal is sized and shaped most generally occurring with old age and natural wear and tear. However, this condition can also be found in young patients and can cause complications in development.
When the nerves in your lumbar spine compress due to changes in your spinal canal, it can lead to various pain in your back, including common symptoms of:
- Pain, numbness, weakness in legs when walking
- Camping in the calves
- Pain when lying down or bending
How Does Vertiflex Work?
The Vertiflex Superion interspinous spacer is a small tube-looking device around the size of the dime. It’s used to restore the space between vertebrae and minimize blood loss and damaging tissue for a quicker and safer recovery.
The procedure works by relieving the pressure by holding the vertebrae apart to reduce inflammation. Compared to traditional surgery, this minimally invasive treatment is available in many sizes and helps to ease your range of motion in the back.
Am I A Candidate?
We recommend the Vertiflex procedure to patients who have tried injections and either failed for not found them effective anymore. There are specific criteria for patients to meet for this procedure but Dr. Z is very knowledgeable about selecting the correct patient. We have had great success already and it goes well alongside our goals –to start with conservative therapies first while considering all options and ultimately avoiding or prolonging surgery.
Does Vertiflex Superion Provide Long-Term Relief?
Vertiflex Superion has shown effectiveness in providing long-term relief for individuals with lumbar spinal stenosis. Clinical studies demonstrate sustained improvement in symptoms, including reduced pain and increased functionality. While individual outcomes may vary, many patients experience lasting benefits from this minimally invasive procedure. Superion's ability to decompress the spinal canal and alleviate pressure on affected nerves contributes to its success in offering extended relief for those suffering from lower back pain associated with lumbar spinal stenosis. We recommend scheduling a consult with our Newport Beach doctor for personalized insights based on individual circumstances.
