OUR PROCEDURES

mild® Procedure

North Lakes Pain Consultants is excited to announce that we offer the minimally invasive Mild Procedure for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).
This low-risk, outpatient treatment removes the cause of stenosis through an incision the size of a baby aspirin and has shown to significantly improve LSS pain and mobility.
Contact North Lakes Pain Consultants today to see if you are a candidate for the Mild Procedure.

LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS & THE ENLARGED LIGAMENT

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a condition in which the lower spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal nerves in the lower back. Often caused by an enlarged ligament, this compression is best visualized as a “kink in a drinking straw” and can contribute to pain and mobility issues. LSS is generally found in people over the age of 50 and the likelihood of developing LSS increases with age.

SYMPTOMS

PAIN, NUMBNESS, tingling, or heaviness in the low back, legs, or buttocks when standing/walking.

TEMPORARY RELIEF when bending forward while sitting or standing as pressure on the spinal cord is released and space in the spinal canal is “opened.” Common actions include finding a chair, leaning over a shopping cart, using a walker or cane.
