About the mild® Procedure


mild® Procedure. Lasting Relief.

An hour may change everything for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Find out how this quick outpatient procedure addresses a major root cause of LSS and may help patients stand longer and walk farther* with less pain.

What is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?

LSS is a condition in which the lower spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal nerves in the lower back. Typically found in those over 50 years of age, common LSS symptoms include:

  • Pain or numbness in the lower back when standing upright
  • Pain, numbness, heaviness, or tingling in upper legs or buttocks when walking
  • Relief when sitting or bending forward

Your Next Step Could be mild

mild® is an early treatment option to consider if more conservative therapies, such as physical therapy or pain medications, are not providing adequate relief. The mild®  Procedure addresses a major root cause of LSS by removing excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and requires no implants, stitches, general anesthesia, steroids, or opioids. Patients typically resume normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions.*

mild® is nationally covered by Medicare (all ages, all plan types) nationwide and many commercial insurers are currently reviewing payment policies.
