Surgical relief of Spinal Stenosis need not be so risky and invasive. Modern medical advancements offer an FDA-approved “Band-Aid” surgery to treat Spinal Stenosis. This procedure, called Superion, was developed by Vertiflex® specifically to offer a better surgical option for treating Spinal Stenosis or lower back pain .
For this procedure, Dr. Skaliy makes an approximately one-inch incision into the skin. A port about the size of your finger is inserted. A small implant is placed between the vertebrae to re-open the compressed area. This implant releases the pressure and relieves the pain caused by Spinal Stenosis.
This surgical alternative offers a comparable success rate to traditional fusion surgery. And, unlike Spinal Fusion surgery, this Spinal Stenosis treatment:
Why is it called “Band-Aid” surgery?
The entire procedure is performed through a finger-sized port in the back. Our specialized surgical and magnification equipment allows precise and effective surgical procedures with the least risk to the patient. Dr. Skaliy can perform the entire operation, stitch the port closed and cover the incision with a Band-Aid. This option means no general anesthesia during the procedure and much less discomfort to the patient during recovery.
There is no reason for you to endure the pain or risk permanent numbness, weakness or paralysis that can be caused by Spinal Stenosis. To learn more about Superion by Vertiflex, fill out the form below to schedule your consultation with Dr. Skaliy today.
