What Is The Vertiflex Procedure?
The Vertiflex Procedure is redefining the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) for patients. It provides patients with a clinically proven, minimally invasive solution that is designed to deliver long-term relief from the leg and back pain associated with LSS. This level-one evidence-based procedure is supported by data from patients who reported successful outcomes up to five years.
This procedure uses a small spacer that is placed inside the spine without impacting the nearby bone or tissue. Once inserted, the spacer preserves space in the spine, keeping pressure off the nerves in the lower back, which can result in the reduction or elimination of leg and back pain. This simple outpatient procedure was developed with patient safety and comfort in mind, with clinical evidence of long-term relief. This procedure aims to provide stenosis sufferers the freedom to get on with their daily lives without the burden of pain.
