MILD Procedure - Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression

The *mild*® Procedure is an FDA-cleared minimally invasive treatment option that addresses a major root cause of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). LSS is primarily a degenerative, age-related narrowing of the lower spinal canal that causes symptoms of pain, numbness, tingling or heaviness when standing or walking in the low back, legs, or buttocks. The *mild*® Procedure treats this condition by removing excess, thickened ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal and reduce the pressure on the spinal nerves.

*mild*® is an early treatment option to consider when conservative therapies such as physical therapy, pain medication, and chiropractic treatments do not provide adequate relief.

The short, outpatient *mild*® Procedure can be performed through a single, tiny incision smaller than the size of a baby aspirin (5.1 mm).
