New Techniques in Pain Management

A New Standard of Care For Lumbar Stenosis - Vertiflex

The Superion® , product  of Vertiflex is  an Indirect Decompression System (IDS) is a new, minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to be effective in the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) symptoms. 

The Superion® IDS provides patients with LSS a safe and effective alternative when conservative treatment has failed and laminectomy is too aggressive. The device is delivered through a small tube about the size of a dime with no resection of anatomical structures and minimal blood loss. This procedure can be completed in an outpatient setting and general anesthesia is not required.

Superion's effectiveness is demonstrated in the most extensive device clinical trial ever conducted on lumbar spinal stenosis: prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center, with 470 patients at 29 clinical sites. Among those patients in the clinical trial that were followed up through 60 months after surgery, almost all expressed overall satisfaction and significant reduction in clinical symptoms.
