The mild (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression) devices are for the treatment of many forms of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) that previously have required extended inpatient therapy and recovery. mild removes small portions of the bone and tissue reducing the pressure on the nerves through a low-risk posterior approach. The entire procedure takes place using a 5.1 mm mild Portal, only about the diameter of a pencil.
The safe, therapeutic nature of the mild procedure allows for shorter in-patient therapy and recovery time compared to other open surgical treatment options such as laminotomy, laminectomy and spinal fusion for LSS. Patients who undergo mild are typically discharged the day of the procedure.
The mild procedure can be performed using fluoroscopic guidance in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia or MAC support.
