Why Consider the MILD Procedure?
Lumbar spinal stenosis is commonly caused by a buildup of excess ligament tissue, leading to the narrowing of the spinal canal. This can compress nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, and limited mobility. The MILD procedure focuses on removing small portions of this overgrown ligament tissue, restoring space in the spinal canal and offering relief from debilitating symptoms.
How is the MILD Procedure Performed?
Under the guidance of advanced imaging technology, specialized tools are used to remove the excess ligament tissue causing spinal canal narrowing. The procedure requires only a tiny incision, ensuring minimal disruption and maximizing patient comfort. Once the procedure is complete, the spinal canal's space is restored, effectively alleviating pressure on the nerves.
Are You the Right Candidate for MILD?
The MILD procedure is specifically designed for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis resulting from ligament overgrowth. If you experience:
- Persistent pain in the lower back or legs
- Numbness or weakness in your legs
- Difficulty walking or standing for prolonged periods
You might be a suitable candidate for the MILD procedure. However, a comprehensive evaluation by our specialists will determine the best course of action for your specific condition.
Recovery and Post-Procedure Care
One of the standout advantages of the MILD procedure is the rapid recovery time. Most patients can expect:
- Minimal post-procedure discomfort
- A return to daily activities within a few days
- A marked improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain levels
Following the procedure, our dedicated team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
