Newsletter – September 2022



For almost a year now, we have performed a handful of mild® cases in our Ambulatory Surgery Center with success. The mild® Procedure is for patients suffering from Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) with Neurogenic Claudication (NC).

It is a safe, durable treatment alternative for LSS patients who would generally be referred for epidural steroid injections (ESIs). The safety profile is similar to ESIs and is optimal for the COVID environment as the procedure requires no general anesthesia, steroids, opioids, stitches, or implants.

Before mild®

Excess ligament causes pressure on the nerves in the lower back

After mild®

Similar to “removing a kink in a drinking straw”, mild® reduces the compression to restore mobillity and relieve pain.

About mild®

  • Mild is a minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis patients who are suffering from the symptoms of neurogenic claudication.
  • Unlike some major surgeries, Mild doesn’t eliminate future treatment options – because with mild, no major structural anatomy of the spine is altered.
  • Mild helped 88% of patients avoid back surgery for at least 5 years while providing lasting relief.

You can have your patients contact us for an appointment and assure them that we practice strict safety protocols to keep patients and our staff safe. We can provide additional information and specifics when they contact us for scheduling.
