mild® for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Bergen County

mild® is a short, outpatient treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) that restores space in the spinal canal to help improve back and leg pain.* Using specialized tools and imaging, mild® addresses a major root cause of LSS by removing thickened ligament through an incision smaller than the size of baby aspirin, leaving no implants behind, only a Band-Aid. 

 

The minimally invasive mild® Procedure has a safety profile similar to epidural steroid injections but with lasting results, and patients typically return to normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions.* mild® is covered nationwide by Medicare (all ages, all plan types, including Medicare Advantage) the VA, U.S. Military & IHS. Commercial coverage varies.

mild® Q & A

The physician would need to assess the patient’s health and disease state to identify if the patient is a candidate. Typically, if the physician can access the HLF safely, mild® can be performed.

Yes. mild® doesn’t cause major anatomical changes and therefore doesn’t burn bridges if other treatments are required in the future. mild® does not eliminate any treatment options.

Patients typically resume normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions after having the mild® Procedure. Many patients notice an improvement in their ability to stand longer and walk farther within a few days, as shown in the Functional Outcome Improvement charts from the Cleveland Clinic Study at 1-Year below, and in some cases immediately after having mild®. 

For some patients, it’s a matter of rebuilding strength after being deconditioned by the debilitating effects of LSS, such as a limited ability to walk. In these cases, it may take three to twelve months post-mild® to achieve full benefits.

All lumbar levels, including L5-S1, are treatable with mild®. The physician should decide which levels to treat based on symptom and imaging assessment.
