Minimally invasive lumbar decompression also known as the MILD Procedure. ASCPM performs this procedure for pain management in certain cases of spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis refers to a condition where the spaces within the spine narrow. This leads to nerve compression and subsequent pain and discomfort.

How It Works

During the procedure, a small incision is made in the back. Then, a practitioner inserts a special device. This device aids in the removal of excess tissue and the widening of narrowed spaces within the spine. By doing so, it alleviates pressure on the nerves, thereby reducing pain and improving mobility.

The Benefits

The procedure constitutes a minimally invasive treatment option. It involves smaller incisions and minimal disruption to surrounding tissues compared to traditional surgery. This approach often results in shorter recovery times. It also can reduce post-operative pain for individuals undergoing treatment.

Procedure Details

It’s crucial to consult with a ASPCM practitioner. They can determine the suitability of minimally invasive lumbar decompression for managing your specific spinal stenosis condition. In addition, they can offer comprehensive information about the procedure and its potential benefits tailored to your individual situation.
