MILD Procedure in Texas
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression
The mild procedure also known as Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression is a new, minimally invasive approach to reduce pain and improve mobility in lumbar spinal stenosis patients.
Thousands of patients have been treated by mild procedure, which is enabled by innovative new technology and can only be performed by specially trained physicians. The safety and efficacy of MILD have been demonstrated in several clinical studies, which are published in leading scientific journals. If you suffer from the pain and physically limiting effects of lumbar spinal stenosis, there has never been a better time to get help.
Benefits of MILD
Unlike some treatments that may only temporarily address symptoms, MILD safely and effectively addresses the underlying cause of pain and immobility in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.
What you can expect with the mild procedure:
- Minimally invasive procedure through a tiny incision, requiring no stitches
- Local anesthetic and light sedation is typical
- Fast procedure time, usually performed in 1 hour
- Generally return home the same day
- Often return to work and resume light daily tasks within a few days
- No implants left behind
Compared to more invasive surgical procedures that require general anesthesia, mild can be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia or light sedation, and patients experience fewer complications. Also, procedure and recovery times are generally reduced compared to more invasive procedures, after which patients may need rehabilitation or physical therapy.
