Spinal stenosis is a common condition that occurs when the spinal canal narrows, placing pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This can cause chronic pain, numbness, and weakness in the back, legs, and arms. If you've been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, you may be wondering about your treatment options. The Vertiflex procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option that has been proven effective in relieving the symptoms of spinal stenosis.
The Vertiflex procedure involves the placement of a small, titanium alloy implant in the affected area of the spine. The implant creates space between the vertebrae, reducing the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. The procedure is performed using a small incision and a specialized tool called a fluoroscope, which allows the surgeon to guide the implant into place with precision and accuracy.
One of the major benefits of the Vertiflex procedure is that it is minimally invasive. Unlike traditional open surgery, which can involve large incisions and significant downtime, the Vertiflex procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day as the procedure. This can lead to less pain, scarring, and downtime, allowing you to get back to your normal activities more quickly.
In addition to its minimally invasive nature, the Vertiflex procedure has been shown to be effective in relieving the symptoms of spinal stenosis. A clinical study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine found that patients who underwent the Vertiflex procedure experienced significant improvement in their symptoms, including reduced pain and improved mobility.
