Chicagoland Pain Management is proud to offer sophisticated forms of treatment for our patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. A narrowing of the spinal canal in the lumbar area, lumbar spinal stenosis places pressure on delicate spinal nerves, resulting in symptoms such as pain in the leg, groin, buttocks, and back. It may also cause numbness, muscle weakness, and impaired bowel or bladder control.
Spinal stenosis is a degenerative process that is the result of aging and “wear and tear” on the spine from everyday activities. It typically affects patients over the age of 50 and is more common in the lumbar (low back) region of the spine.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and Indirect Decompression
Vertiflex® offers innovative minimally invasive treatment options for lumbar spinal stenosis, filling the treatment gap between conservative care and more traditional invasive surgical procedures.
The Superion® Indirect Decompression System by Vertiflex is an implant that relieves painful nerve compression associated with lumbar spinal stenosis. It is placed between the spinous processes of the affected vertebrae, shifting the weight and pressure off of the affected nerves without destabilizing the spine or changing spinal anatomy.
This minimally invasive treatment is performed on an outpatient basis with rapid recovery times. The device is designed to limit extension at the affected vertebrae while preserving your ability to move and function normally. The following downloadable documents provide additional information about this minimally invasive procedure:
