Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) is caused by the compression of the nerves in the spinal canal, leading to pain and numbness in the lower back and legs as well as reduced mobility. More than five million Americans suffer from LSS and that number is expected to rise as the population ages.
The likely increase in LSS patients means alternative therapies such as mild will be essential to meeting their needs in a timely, safe and cost effective way. Given the societal aging trend, utilization of the mild procedure will likely grow to include even larger numbers of individuals and can be projected to result in meaningful savings in health care costs.
Multiple studies have confirmed that mild patients are experiencing positive effects with a low risk of major complications.
