The doctors of The Center for Interventional Pain Medicine at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, offer minimally invasive lumbar decompression for patients with spinal stenosis.
Minimally invasive lumbar decompression, also known as MILD, is a procedure used for treatment of spinal stenosis.
MILD is an effective procedure that helps alleviate the underlying symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis. The benefits of MILD may include less time in the hospital for an outpatient procedure and quicker recovery times.
When the spinal canal narrows, the spinal cord and nerves are compressed causing pain and immobility. To relieve the pressure, a small incision, about the size of a pencil tip, is made in the back. Special instruments are inserted and used to remove the excess ligaments, bone and tissue allowing space in the spinal canal to be restored.
