MILD Procedure


Minimally Invasive Procedure

If you have pain or numbness in your lower back or suffer from tingling in your legs or buttocks, you might benefit from the MILD procedure. This procedure is safe and effective for treating lumbar spinal stenosis.

Without treatment, you may continue to suffer, and your condition may lead to long-term problems. Pain & Spine Specialists will complete a medical evaluation to determine if the MILD procedure is right for you.
