Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment
We are excited to introduce you to one of our most advanced and effective treatments for lumbar spinal stenosis: the minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure.
A minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure is a surgical procedure used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the back, and a specialized instrument is used to remove the portion of the vertebra that is compressing the nerves. This creates more space in the spinal canal and reduces pressure on the nerves, alleviating pain and other symptoms.
Who Is a Candidate?
A minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure may be recommended for patients who have lumbar spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back. Symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis may include back pain, leg pain, numbness, and weakness.
The minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the back, and a specialized instrument is used to remove the portion of the vertebra that is compressing the nerves.
After the procedure, patients are usually able to go home the same day and are encouraged to walk and engage in light activity as soon as possible. Most patients experience significant pain relief and improved mobility within a few weeks of the procedure.
The minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure offers many benefits to patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis, including:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Less postoperative pain
- Quick recovery time
- Improved mobility and function
- Long-term pain relief
