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
  • Sciatica
  • Camping in the calves
  • Pain when lying down or bending

How Does Vertifelx 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.
