Home 9 MILD Procedure

The MILD procedure (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression) is safe and can work for numerous patients diagnosed with LSS (Lower Spinal Stenosis). It helps them manage pain and improve their standing and walking functions. This is a short, outpatient procedure that is performed from creating an incision the size of a baby aspirin. It requires no general anesthesia, implants, or stitches.

The procedure has received positive response rates of over 81 percent and has been performed on more than 15,000 patients worldwide.
