What is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, also known as LSS, occurs typically with age when the spinal canal changes in shape and size. It is most common among people over 50 years of age.
How does Superion treat LSS?
Superion is a minimally invasive approach to treating LSS. Designed with patient comfort and safety in mind, Superion relieves pressure on affected nerves by acting as an extension blocker. Superion is implanted through a tiny tube to minimize tissue damage and blood loss. It’s a simple outpatient procedure with a rapid recovery time and no destabilization of the spine. In order to ensure controlled movement and minimized post-procedure complications, Superion is available in multiple sizes to accommodate varying patient anatomy.
Is a minimally invasive spine treatment effective?
