A minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, Mild removes a major root cause of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), helping patients achieve lasting relief from back and leg pain. Performed through a single, tiny incision, Mild has a safety profile similar to an epidural steroid injection, but with lasting results. The procedure is nationally covered by Medicare (all ages, all plan types) and requires no general anesthesia, implants, stitches, steroids or opioids. If your current LSS treatment isn’t providing you with adequate relief, Mild could be your next step.
