Lumbar Indirect Decompression for Spinal Stenosis
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Surgical relief of Spinal Stenosis need not be so risky and invasive.

Modern medical advancements offer an FDA-approved surgery to treat Spinal Stenosis. This procedure, called Superion, was developed by Vertiflex® specifically to offer a better surgical option for treating Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) or lower back pain.

Consider Superion if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Leg, buttock, and groin pain
  • Numbness, weakness, cramping, or stiffness in the legs, or buttocks
  • Difficulty walking or standing but experience relief in the seated or flexed position

How does Superion treat LSS?

The Vertiflex Superion – Indirect Decompression System, is a completely new, minimally invasive approach to treating lumbar stenosis that fills a gap in the continuum between conservative care and invasive surgery. Designed with patient safety and comfort in mind, Superion is implanted through a small tube the size of a dime to reduce tissue damage and blood loss. It’s a simple outpatient procedure with a rapid recovery time and no destabilization of the spine.

The Superion implant acts as an indirect decompression device. Its anatomic design provides optimal fit and preserves a patient’s anatomy and ability to maintain motion. Superion acts as an extension blocker, relieving pressure on the affected nerves in the manner that one would achieve relief in a seated or flexed position. Available in multiple sizes to accommodate varying patient anatomy, Superion ensures controlled movement and minimizes post-procedure complications. Superion was developed to provide patients with a safe and effective alternative when conservative treatment has failed and laminectomy is too aggressive.

FDA approved, Superion is clinically shown to be effective for up to 60 months. Certain risks are associated with the use of Superion. Consult your doctor for more information regarding these risks.
