Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (MILD®) is a relatively new regenerative medicine procedure to treat lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and other painful spinal conditions. LSS is a condition where the spinal cord becomes narrowed, causing pain in the lumbar spine or lower back. Many other spinal conditions cause compressed discs and nerves that result in back pain and/or referred pain. The MILD procedure is minimally invasive and much safer than open surgery to correct LSS or other spinal conditions.
During the MILD procedure, a small incision is made at the base of the spine to remove damaged bone and ligaments and allow for better flexibility of the spine. The removed materials allow the spine to decompress and move more freely. Dr. Roy Nini is an experienced orthopedic physician who can perform this procedure to help you return to full mobility and a normal life without surgery.
Safe, Effective Treatment for LSS & Other Painful Spinal Conditions
Dr. Nini and his medical team at FullRange Spine & Ortho are pleased to offer this innovative procedure to patients with LSS or other painful spinal conditions that wish to avoid dangerous surgery and long recovery periods. The MILD procedure uses a single, small incision that requires no stitches. Patients only require local anesthesia and can resume light activities within a few days.
The procedure uses specialized tools and hi-resolution imaging to guide the doctor’s movements. The entire procedure is accomplished in less than an hour, and patients return home the same day. Dr. Nini will provide you with instructions for aftercare and a schedule for returning to light movements and then full activity.
If you suffer from LSS or other painful spinal conditions, contact Full Range Spine & Ortho today. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Nini to discuss the possibility of minimally invasive lumbar decompression, or MILD, to reduce pain and restore mobility without the risks of open spinal surgery.
