Veriflex ProceduresVertiflex Procedure - Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment

The Vertiflex Procedure is a safe, minimally invasive treatment that has been clinically proven to provide effective long-term relief from the pain associated with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).  Pain from LSS is descibed as aching, heaviness and fatigue when you stand or walk. Standing and walking "pinch the nerves" in the spine. Once you sit down the spine opens up and the pain goes away. Leaning over a cart while walking also relieves the pain.

Placement

  • A small spacer is placed between the bones of the spine without removing of any nearby bone.

Activation

  • Once inserted, the spacer’s arms open around the spinous processes (the bumps you can feel in your spine).  The arms hold the spacer in place and help to make the proper space for the affected nerves.

Relief

  • The spacer preserves the space in the spine, which keeps pressure off the nerves that cause leg and back pain.

How does the Vertiflex Procedure fit my pain?

The Vertiflex Procedure is intended to provide the same relief you experience when leaning forward or sitting down. It fits your pain by reducing or eliminating the pressure on the nerves caused by LSS. There are multiple sizes of the spacer to fit your individual anatomy.

Is it safe?

  • The Vertiflex Procedure was developed with patient safety and comfort in mind.
  • Its minimally invasive approach is preferred among many doctors across the United States.
  • General anesthesia is not required and there is minimal recovery time, getting you home the same day.
  • The spacer is designed to support your existing anatomy and does not require removal of bone, making it a safe option for LSS treatment.
  • It is reversible.  The spacer can be removed if you need more invasive surgery.

Vertiflex before and afterIs it effective?

The Vertiflex Procedure was the subject of an extremely thorough FDA clinical trial for LSS. Results from the trial proved the effectiveness of the procedure, with significant improvement in pain relief.

The procedure can be completed in an outpatient setting and most patients can return home within the same day.
